Sterling Dog Off-Leash Park

9851 West Irving Street
Boise, ID 83701

The Sterling Property is an undeveloped park in west Boise, featuring a 3/4 acre temporary fenced dog off-leash park.

A master plan for the 8-acre undeveloped park was developed in 2010 with input from local residents. Located in West Boise at the intersection of Mitchell and Irving, the property was purchased by the City of Boise in 2004 from the Sterling family.

When funding is available, the park will feature an expanded dog off-leash park, a pond, walking paths, tennis and basketball courts, picnic shelter, playground, 30-space parking area and spray park.

Thanks to donations from the Idaho Capital City Kennel Club and volunteer labor provided by local Eagle Scouts and KeyBank employees, the City was able to open up the dog park for public use ahead of schedule.

The Dog Park is available for use every day from sunrise to sunset, and consists of mulch ground cover, trees, picnic tables, and shade structures. A mutt mitt dispenser and trash can are provided for picking up after your pet. There is no water, so please bring your own.
