There’s Lots to Do in Eagle, Idaho

If you enjoy an active lifestyle and love being close to nature, Eagle, Idaho has you covered. Eagle is surrounded by breathtaking views and small town charm. It also hosts many community events throughout the year. In Eagle, you’ll have plenty to keep you busy.  Let’s take a look at a few of the things that make Eagle an exceptional place to call home.

Eagle Island State Park

Eagle Island State Park spans 545 acres and is bordered by the Boise River.  It features sandy beaches, more than five miles of walking, biking and horse-riding trails, picnic and fishing areas, the largest zip line in the state of Idaho, paddleboard rentals, and a 19-hole disc golf course. If you enjoy winter activities, Gateway Snow Park, within the park’s boundaries, offers snow tubing. Eagle Island State Park offers something for everyone.

Nature Abounds

Eagle Island State Park is far from the only place to go in Eagle for a view of nature. The Boise River runs through town, and alongside it runs the Greenbelt which is filled with tree-lined walkways and nature scenes. If you prefer a more active participation with nature, you’re just a short drive from camping sites, rafting adventures, and ski resorts. 

Community Events 

Eagle has a strong sense of community togetherness. As a result, it has many local events and festivals that regularly bring the community together. For almost six months of the year, from May until early October, the Eagle Saturday Market is open at Heritage Park in downtown Eagle. A variety of vendors set up shop there with specialty foods, hand-made crafts, and locally grown produce. In July, you can attend Eagle Fun Days, which features a classic car show, and in October, the city hosts the Eagle Harvest Fest. The Eagle Recreation Department also offers weekly classes and activities for seniors at a low cost.
