North East Boise is made up of 4 distinct neighborhoods each with their own unique qualities, all of which is centered around the Boise River.

Warm Springs Ave
The Warm Springs Ave neighborhood is the oldest of the NE area! Many of Warm Springs Ave homes are in one of Boise’s Historic Districts! Warm Springs is named so because of the actual geothermal warm springs water that flows throw a century old wooden pipe (over 5 ft. in diameter) that supplies many of the homes and downtown buildings with geothermal heat.

A neat feature of this area is that it ties in nicely with the green belt and park system that follows the Boise River, as do all of the North East Neighborhoods.

Foothills East / Northeast Boise Bench
Foothills East is a fantastic area where you can find beautiful views of downtown Boise and the entire valley. Another awesome feature is the network of foothill trails for hiking and biking. One of the prominent features of NE Boise is Table Rock. Table Rock is one of the several ridge to river trail systems in the area, that provide great recreation opportunities for everyone. Just below Table Rock you will find the old Boise Penitentiary and Botanical gardens. Both make up a great place to visit and hike, or see one of the several musical performances in their summer concert series.

Warm Springs Mesa
The Mesa is on the east side of Table Rock, providing great views of the valley, downtown, and Warm Springs golf course. This community is a mixture of both older homes and new construction, that is currently expanding.

Harris Ranch
Harris Ranch is east of the Mesa and follows along the Boise River and is the gateway of access to Lucky Peak Dam (Boise’s water recreation area which feeds the Boise River.) Harris Ranch is also home to Boise’s own Shakespeare festival which provides outdoor theater entertainment for most of the year. This area is largely made up of newer homes, and continues to grow.
