Nestled just north of downtown is the Boise’s North End area, gateway to the foothills. The heart of the North End is Hyde Park. Built in the early part of the 20th century, it was home to many prominent citizens and some of the most beautiful homes in the valley located on Harrison Boulevard.
One of the most unique features of the North End is the collection of different architectural styles. In addition to being a place of historical and natural beauty, people can find fun in the many public parks such as Camel’s Back or Elm Grove Park. For food, drinks, and social activities, Hyde Park boasts restaurants, coffee shops, and much more. For bikers and hikers, there is a bountiful supply of trails weaving their way throughout the foothills in the Ridges to Rivers Trail System which are easily accessible from the North End.
Overall, the region and its residents are a bit more casual in their approach to life and love good food, good company, and beautiful Idaho outdoors. With an emphasis on livability and sustainability, North End residents are intensely loyal to the area and the way of life.
