Fort Boise

* Outdoor: 'Crete
* Free
* Trannie / Street
* Rating: The battle of Fort Boise

The park that Fort Boise is in has a full-time dedicated radio-control car track. What?!? Damn right they better have a skatepark if they've got time for that noise.

Fort B is a sweet park. We dis the coping a little [check the pic below] and it could be much better in places, but the park has "the flow" and lots of lines from hit to bank to spine, etc. Good job.

Idaho actually has a respectable bag o' parks within a few hours of each other. Locally in Boise you have Fort Boise, Rhodes Park [under the fwy] and the new Lucky88 indoor park. Further out you've got two parks to the west in Eagle and additional parks in Ketchum, Hailey, and Blackfoot. We've got pics of all of these parks, and we'll eventually have all of the above online - so stay tuned. For now, if you're passing through, go getcha self some.

Directions: Get on Interstate 184 west toward Boise. Interstate 184 will then turn into Highway 20. Highway 20 will end and turn into Myrtle Street. Take Myrtle St. to Fifth Street and turn left [northeast]. At W Fort Street make a right [south], then make a left [east] on Garrison Rd. The park is on the right, across from the Collins Rd. and Garrison Rd. intersection.
