Image Description

Strategically placed between the Boise foothills and the Boise River, Eagle has much to offer in the way of walking, horse and bike riding, a state-of-the-art skateboard park, and ponds and other water amenities. With the intersection of the state’s primary north-south highway (Highway 55) and a major east-west route (Highway 44) located in Eagle, access to and from the community is efficient and diverse. The business district in Eagle has retained its own appeal, with a growing number of modern boutiques, restaurants and small businesses mixing with the original stone buildings of the downtown core. Heritage Park in Olde Town Eagle has become a central gathering place with its shady trees, gazebo and interactive fountain drawing residents for both special events and casual outings.

Arboretum Park, Friendship Park, Orval Krassen Park, Merrill Park, Guerber, and Eagle-Ada parks each offer their own variety of recreational diversions. Development of Eagle-Ada Park continues with the construction of a world-class cycling facility, the Idaho Velodrome and Cycling Park. Eagle Island State Park provides another 500 acres of riding trails and casual opportunities on the city’s western edge. Golfing also adds to the city’s spacious climate with Eagle Hills Golf Course (built in 1960) and Banbury Golf Course (built in 1999) located inside the city limits. Shadow Valley, Foxtail, and Riverbirch Golf Courses are found on the perimeter of Eagle within the city’s area of impact.

Eagle is located 10 miles west of downtown Boise in Ada County. It is bordered by Boise on the east, Garden City on the southeast, and Meridian on the south and is located 30 miles east of the Idaho-Oregon state line. The City of Eagle has grown from 14,000 residents in 2003 to an estimated 22,000 in 2008. This influx of new residents has resulted in a growing number of retail and commercial offerings and location of offices from a variety of industries.
