Morrison Knudsen Nature Center

600 South Walnut

The Morrison Knudsen Nature Center offers a unique wildlife experience on a 4.6-acre site along the Boise River Greenbelt. The StreamWalk and Visitor Center provide a glimpse of Idaho's many landscapes and abundant wildlife. Underwater viewing windows along the stream walk give visitors a fish-eye view of the world.

MK Nature center is beautiful. Huge pond with a tin of giant Koi living in it. Tons of open spaces to bring the kids or fur babies along as well. And a great place to go play Pokemon Go. This location is one of the few rotating 'nests' that have a larger appearance rate for one specific monster. If you are looking for a place to earn candy and evolve something then this your place. Nest lists for Boise can be found online as well

Always a great place to walk and enjoy some beautiful plants and animals in the city. The path makes the most of the space- it feels like it is a larger area than it is. Also it is located right next to Municipal Park, where they have a good-sized playground. A great place to spend the afternoon, especially with kids!

Have always loved this place. Took my kids when they were little and now I take my grandkids. I like to visit year-round, never know what you will see

Love this place! It's a bit of nature in town, peaceful walk through the stream and pond area. The visitor center is interesting. The grandkids always have a good time. And it's all free!!

Always go on my weekends off from work that is whenever I can and ride my bike down the Greenbelt to enjoy the bike trails and having my lunch. Stopping by the Kristen Armstrong park to see the MK Nature Center and the wildlife conservation of all different species of plants birds insects animals. The most I really enjoy is viewing the trout and salmon through the glass and learning the life stages of these various fish and how important the ecosystem is for all of us.
