Welcome to Eagle, Idaho! Nestled in the heart of the Treasure Valley, Eagle is a fast-growing city with a commitment to quality of life, education, and strong community ties. Although it borders Boise, Garden City, and Meridian, Eagle stretches its wings out north, and encompasses some truly spectacular homes and farmland outside of the city’s hustle and bustle.
Eagle is a prosperous city, where families take pride in their neighborhoods and are active in their community. Eagle’s fast growth, along with its close proximity to Boise and Meridian, means it’s a bustling area full of every modern amenity you could hope for. But in Eagle, it’s also easy to step back away from the hectic city life and enjoy a quiet stroll around the block, a day at the park, or an intimate night on the town.
Like its fellow Treasure Valley cities, Eagle enjoys four distinct seasons. Summers are hot to warm, winters are relatively mild and see some amount of snowfall, and both the spring bloom and autumn leaves bring with them the pleasures that only fully-realized seasons can.
Eagle is a growing city, but it still retains the best parts of its small town charm. The city also values its rural roots, which you can see when you drive around the city or pay a visit to Twin Oaks Farms.
When you live in Eagle, you’re part of a proud community of entrepreneurs, individualists, adventurers, and community leaders. Life is what you make it in Eagle, and no matter what kind of lifestyle you want, Eagle is a family-friendly city that can meet your needs.

Located in downtown Eagle, Arboretum Park is a sight to behold in all four seasons. It’s a true arboretum in the sense that many different types of trees and shrubs are grown there, both for display and for study. Each of Arboretum Park’s 37 varieties of trees are identified by a name stake, which explain their scientific name, common name, and family. For nature lovers and aspiring arborists/botanists, it’s a chance to learn about Idaho’s trees while soaking up their natural splendor. Depending on the time of year, you’ll also find many roses, native plants, and perennial flowers at Arboretum Park. Well-maintained walking paths encourage leisurely strolls, and picnic tables dot the area for families who want to plan a full day in the park.

Sitting on the southwest outskirts of Eagle, the 545 acre public recreation area known as Eagle Island State Park is one of the Treasure Valley’s best kept secrets.

There are few better ways to spend a warm day anywhere in the Treasure Valley than at Eagle Island State Park.

This multi-use facility is one of the largest of its kind in the country, and is operated by both Ada County Parks & Waterways and the City of Eagle. The park connects to the Ridge to Rivers trail system, which allows cyclists to ride from Eagle to Lucky Peak Reservoir on mountain bike trails. This extensive network of trails provides something for bicyclers of all skill levels, and includes dirt jumps, racing courses, a BMX track, and more.

Reid W. Merrill Sr. Community Park
Completed in 2003, Reid W. Merrill Sr. Community Park is a relatively recent community space that has some serious staying power. The park is extra popular with children in the summer, as it features a robust play area that includes a splash pad during daylight hours. Reid W. Merrill Sr. Community Park is unique because of its genuine wetland and riparian areas, which allow families to see Idaho plants and animals on the river in their natural state. There are also basketball courts, a volleyball court, an open gazebo, an open play field, and several picnic areas. If you’re looking for a casual day in the park, then looking no further than Reid W. Merrill Sr. Community Park.
For a slightly less crowded day in the park, you can turn your attention to Friendship Park on E Ranch Drive and N Stierman Way. For a nice game of tennis, there’s no better place in Eagle to go-- Friendship Park offers top-of-the-line lighted tennis courts. It also has a nice playground, picnic tables, picnic shelters, grills, and an arch climber area. If you want to keep it calm and low key, a day at Friendship Park is always nice and breezy.
