With only a few more weeks of warm weather left, we decided to get out of the office and get some fresh air at the oldest park in Nampa! Lakeview Park is (in our opinion) one of the most scenic parks in all of Treasure Valley. This park is 44 acres in size and is located right at the entrance of Nampa right off of the Garrity exit.
Now something we should mention, Lakeview Park doesn’t actually have a lake – at least not anymore! There used to be a man-made lake, Lake Ethel, that was constructed originally to hold irrigation water, but was also used for fishing and swimming. This park is one of a kind simply because of how much it has to offer, as well as how gorgeous it is. Because of all of the amenities and all of the acreage, Lakeview is a wonderful place to reserve for family reunions, weddings, birthdays, ect.
As we said, Lakeview Park has so many things to offer, here is just a small list:
An Amphitheater (1,000 seat capacity)
Outdoor Basketball Courts
Playground (More than one)
Sand Volleyball Court
Covered Picnic Shelters
Historic Displays of a Military Jet & M-60 Tank
With so many things to do, you will never run out of things to do here at the park! The big beautiful trees provide ample shade, while the huge acres of grass allow for an amazing place to play a game of soccer or host an event. The rose garden is beautiful for pictures or even for a wedding reception. The swimming pool is a great place for kids in the summer and each year on their last day of the season they open the pool up to your furry best friends – a dog pool day! You can request the picnic areas for just a fun picnic or to host a birthday party. You have a pond, as well as a flowing river where you can walk along and feed the ducks.
We highly recommend taking a visit to our beloved Nampa favorite and let us know what is your favorite thing the park has to offer!
