Wedding

Have you ever considered having your wedding in one of our parks? Park locations are very affordable.  Consider a wedding along the river or perhaps in our Japanese Gardens at Sportsman Park.  
​Once you find a location you are interested in, just give us a call at (208) 612-8580 to see if it is available on the date you want. We also request an application completed and returned. Print wedding application HERE

Most of our locations are from $50.00 to $100.00 a day to rent.  There are a couple of exceptions like the Freeman Park Bandshell which costs $200.00 per day.  As soon as you decide on a location and if it is available, then we can walk you through the costs and the application process. 

If you're an outdoors kind of gal, take a fresh approach to your wedding and get married in a park. Nothing beats a natural setting and plenty of sunshine. And the cost is tempting—most permits and location fees are nominally priced. However, if you're not prepared for the possible pitfalls—bad weather, annoying insects—your dream day can play out like an Outward Bound adventure. To help you plan a snafu-free ceremony, here's a garden's worth of good advice.

Laying the Groundwork Before settling on a ceremony site, visit it several times during the same season, day of the week, and time of day as you plan to marry. Take note of pedestrian traffic and the position of the sun—this will determine where you place your officiant, bridal party, and guests. (For example, you don't want people squinting into late-afternoon rays.) Try to anticipate potential problems beforehand. Are there any restroom facilities? Is there ample parking? You also need to find out if other events that might be disruptive—a concert or Little League game—will be taking place during your vows. Park officials may be able to clue you in.
