Boise Named No. 1 for Dog Parks in Country
We did it! Boise tops yet another national list; this time for the awesome dog parks that are all around the city. According to Boise Weekly, the Trust for Public Land has named Boise the top city for dog parks in the country. The Center for Park Excellence, a division of Trust for Public Land collected data from the nation's 100 largest city park systems, and concluded that Boise should take the No. 1 spot partly because of the amount of parks dedicated to our fur babies per capita; 13 total.
The data shows that Boise has 5.7 dog parks per 100,000 residents. Portland came in at No. 2 with 5.4 dog parks per 100K, and Henderson, Nevada rounds out the top three with 5 parks per 100K residents.
