Eagle is a Class All its Own
The country setting, amazing people, great schools, safe family oriented neighborhoods, recreation, and many social events are some of the many reasons Eagle is one of the most desirable areas in the Boise area. And what truly sets it apart putting it in a class all its own.
Tucked away in the corner of the Valley, up against the Boise foothills and along the Boise River, you’ll find the charming town of Eagle. There is a lot of history to the town of Eagle dating back to the 1860’s. Several of the historic buildings you see in the downtown area are the originals from the early 1900’s giving Eagle its allure and old-town feel. What was once belittled as the swamp area in the 70’s is now home to some of the most expensive riverfront properties in Southwestern Idaho.
Eagle has come a long way since then growing from a town of just 350 when it was incorporated in 1971 to almost 30,000 today. Smart city planning has allowed for Eagle to maintain its character while catering to the needs of the growing population.
The biggest appeal for Eagle is the smalltown feel, especially in the historic downtown area. Old style street lights line the downtown corridor, restaurants and specialty boutiques cater to the area along with some great places to meet up with friends for happy hour.
The older part of Eagle showcases mature treelined streets, homes on large lots and beautiful family friendly neighborhoods and parks. As Eagle continues to grow, more first-class dining establishments, housing developments, retail outlets, and healthcare facilities come giving residents even more reason to consider Eagle home.
Whether your type of recreation is on two-wheels or two-legs, in the foothills, on the golf course, or along the river, shopping downtown, or sipping wine, 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 Treasure Valleys established golf courses are in Eagle. Banbury Golf Course, rated in the top ten golf courses in Idaho by Golf Digest the past eight years, and Eagle Hills Golf Course. This 18-hole championship course is Eagle’s original golf course offering mature trees, rolling fairways and challenging water features against the backdrop of the Boise foothills.
Eagle Island State Park is its own recreational epicenter with zip-lines, a water slide, sandy beaches, horseback riding trails and more.
The beautifully well-maintained parks have some of the best splash pads in the Valley. And the community events will keep your social calendar full all year-long.
