Boise Things to Do: 58 reviews and 130 photos
Just below the Boise Train Depot is a marvelous landscaping of waterfalls, ponds, flower gardens, and lawn areas designed by Spanish landscape designer, Ricardo Espino. Dedicated to Howard Platt, the natural landscaping provided passing tourists an inviting place to climb around as they could also view over the city. When I visited recently, a photographer stood waiting with her camera and tripod for a wedding couple to arrive. She noted that the Platt Gardens were a popular setting for wedding and graduation photography. I found the pool of golden carp very impressive, but the upkeep of the stone stairs a bit worriesome. However, the gardens are free to the public and open anytime.
