It's a hot 56 degree January day in Boise. A perfect Sunday to get the family out of the house enjoy some time outside. As I've written numerous times before, I enjoy the many outdoor recreational activities and parks Boise has to offer. In comparison to some places I lived in the past Peoria (Can't go outside without the risk of getting shot) and Portland ( Will more than likely find meth needles by the swingsets), I could never seem to find a park that had everything I was looking for.

Enter Camels Back Park in the Northend of Boise. I have been to Camels Back when I live here before but never as a father. I'm always looking for quick, cheap places I can bring Phoenyx to get her out of the house. The park had a giant children's play place with many slides and obstacles for her to burn all that pent-up energy.

The park also had an outdoor gym donated by bodybuilding.com. All of the exercises used your bodyweight for the workout. I could already imagine my self this spring and summer utilizing the area.

And the ultimate draw, the hill. I'm guesstimating, but the Camelback's part of the park is a massive hill that that stretched about 150 yards. It's pretty steep too, and I would guess you climb over 20 stories to get to the top. It's not easy, but the views are worth it.
