You Asked: What is the construction at Julia Davis Park?


There are several upgrades in the works at Julia Davis Park happening in phases over the next few years.

Construction on the first phase is underway and includes renovations to the road and Greenbelt path in the east end of the park from the tennis courts to the Cancer Survivor Plaza. 

According to Boise Parks and Recreation, the asphalt Greenbelt path is being removed and replaced with concrete that is two feet wider than the existing surface. The lighting along the Greenbelt is also being replaced for increased safety and efficiency.

In addition, the asphalt road, curb and gutter from the tennis courts east toward Myrtle Street are being replaced. The cul-de-sac in the area is being removed and replaced with an open green space.

The construction on the Greenbelt and road is expected through October.

In addition to work on the road and greenbelt, there will be a pavilion that will also include a plaza area, restrooms, and a shelter.

“It will be similar to the Ag Pavilion at the Southwest area of the park,” Boise Parks and Recreation director Doug Holloway said. “This new addition will allow for events at the East end of the park, relieving the pressure from events on the west end.” Construction on the pavilion area is expected to continue through late fall.

Holloway said a new roadway from the tennis courts around the playground, boat house, and out to 3rd street is proposed for phase two. That’s in addition to replacing the bridge between the boat house and Zoo Boise. The start date for those upgrades has yet to be determined.
