Tucked away in a corner of the Treasure Valley, nestled between the foothills and the Boise River, you’ll find the charming town of Eagle, Idaho. It’s a city notable for its high-end subdivisions, horse properties, spas, and scenery. The Boise River, with its expanse of towering trees and pedestrian paths known as the Greenbelt, runs through the heart of town. In addition to this, the quaint downtown area, variety of local events, and strong sense of community pride prove that Eagle is in a class by itself when it comes to character, recreation, and charm.
Eagle is rich in history, dating back to the 1860s when gold was discovered there. The township was named “Eagle” by the daughter of one of its settlers due to the number of bald eagles found on Eagle Island. Several of the historic buildings in the downtown area are originals, dating back to the early 1900s, and giving Eagle its allure. Eagle has come a long way since then, growing from a town of just 350 when it was incorporated in 1971 to more than 31,000 today. Its greatest appeal is the old-town feel—especially in the historic downtown area where old-style street lights line the main corridor.
The older part of Eagle showcases mature, treelined streets, stately homes on large lots, and beautiful, family-friendly neighborhoods and parks. A variety of specialty boutiques as well as restaurants and brunch spots provide a central location for locals to meet up with friends for shopping and dining. Smart city planning has allowed Eagle to maintain its character while catering to the needs of the growing population.
As Eagle continues to grow, more first-class dining establishments, entertainment options, housing developments, retail outlets, and healthcare facilities are coming to town, giving residents even more reason to consider Eagle home.
Quiet, cozy Eagle is just an eight-mile drive to the hustle and bustle of downtown Boise. This makes a night out on the town or shopping in the “big city” fun and easy to do.
The scenic setting, great schools, safe, family-oriented neighborhoods, recreation, and abundant social events are some of the many reasons Eagle is one of the most desirable communities in the Boise area. This truly sets it apart—making Eagle, Idaho, a town all its own.
Whether your type of recreation is on two wheels or two legs, in the foothills, on the golf course, or along the river, you’ll find it within Eagle city limits. Home to the Eagle Sports Complex and Bike Park, this massive 200-acre park is one of the largest in the country. It includes a BMX track, world-class mountain bike trails, a skate park, basketball courts, and an inline hockey rink. Two of the Treasure Valley’s established golf courses are located in Eagle — Banbury Golf Course, rated for the past eight years in the top 10 golf courses in Idaho by Golf Digest, and Eagle Hills Golf Course. This 18-hole championship course is Eagle’s original golf course, offering rolling fairways and challenging water features against a backdrop of the Boise foothills.
Just two and a half miles from downtown is Eagle Island State Park, located between the north and south channels of the Boise River. This beautiful 545-acre state park has something for everyone—a waterslide, sandy beaches, picnic area, and more than five miles of trails where outdoor enthusiasts can ride horses, walk their dogs, or play disc golf. For adventure lovers, the park also offers paddleboard rentals plus a 6-line zip line course. Adrenaline junkies will enjoy the quick jump, which simulates a parachute leap from a 60-foot tower. Eagle Island is also home to Gateway Snow Park which features multiple snow tubing runs in wintertime.

Reid Merrill Park has recently been upgraded with a larger splash pad and new playground equipment. This park lies right along the Boise River, allowing for fun family exploration on nearby trails. Whatever your recreation flare, you’ll find it in Eagle.
