Boise's Platt Gardens

This is Boise's Platt Gardens, right in front of the Boise Depot. Yep, it's a passenger train depot but we have no passenger trains coming through Boise. This park has LOTS of koi and grassy areas. It used to be popular for people to picnic here while waiting for friends and family on the train. There are a couple of connecting ponds and little waterfalls. And the fish are really friendly. They were swimming towards us, probably because they heard that my daughter was going to give them a snack.


  1. I love to watch fish in ponds rather than at home aquariums.

  2. Looks like a nice place to spend a lunch hour.

  3. Greetings from Juneau, Alaska!
    Yes, it does feel nice to be home, but the warm weather we experienced in Idaho and Washington felt GREAT.

    I thought of you often in my travels. Perhaps next time I'll be able to visit the southern part of Idaho. I took a couple photos of wagon wheels for you. Hopefully I'll have some time this weekend to email them to you.:)

  4. These look very picture postcard. Very peaceful.


Thanks for stopping by!
