Idaho Falls offers over a dozen parks and outdoor facilities for you to use whenever you want some sunshine and exercise. It's important now more than ever to get outdoors with family and friends—or even go solo—so pack up a lunch and head on over to a local little patch of green.


Central Park

400 N Homes Avenue

Though the name of this park is where the connection between this park in Idaho Falls and the landmark in Manhattan end, there is still much to see here. Central Park plays host to baseball and softball fields, picnic areas and a playground.


Community Park

700 E 25th Street

Like many other parks in Idaho Falls, Community Park features baseball diamonds, a playground and picnic tables. It also has a walking track for those who want to exercise outdoors.


Freeman Park

1290 Science Center

Freeman is Idaho Falls' largest park, featuring five ballfields, a band shelter, areas to play disc golf, a horseshoe pit, a playground, Vietnam Memorial and more. Whether you're with family or friends, there's plenty to do in Freeman Park.


Idaho Falls Dog Park

2878-3140 Lindsay Boulevard

Searching for somewhere to bring Man's Best Friend? Look no further—just off Lindsay Boulevard by the Snake River Animal Shelter is a public dog park. The play areas are separated into small dog and large dog areas so you and your pup always feel welcome.


Lincoln Park

2280 Lincoln Road

Though unassociated with the band, there is still plenty of fun to be had in Idaho Falls' Lincoln Park. The park has picnic tables, a playground and a tennis court.


Ryder Park

2001 W Sunnyside Road

The prime feature of Ryder Park is Becker Pond, where you can fish year-round. Several species of fish can be found in the pond, including Bass, Brook and Bull Trout, Sturgeon and more.


South Tourist Park

2800 S Yellowstone Avenue

Aptly named, this park offers RV hookups and a boat ramp into Gem Lake for vacationers and locals alike. Even if you're not a camper, you can enjoy the lakeside view from the picnic areas.


Tautphaus Park

2800 S Boulevard

Tautphaus is one of the oldest parks in Idaho Falls and is home to the Idaho Falls Zoo. Other amenities include a playground, skate park, tennis court, baseball and softball fields and picnic areas.
