City of Eagle
Strategically placed between the Boise foothills and the Boise River, Eagle has much to offer in the way of walking, horse and bike riding, a state-of-the-art skateboard park, and ponds and other water amenities. With the intersection of the state’s primary north-south highway (Highway 55) and a major east-west route (Highway 44) located in Eagle, access to and from the community is efficient and diverse.
The streetcar line is no more, but the city of Eagle maintains its rural appeal, with plenty of open space, a Western architectural theme, tree-lined streets, and plenty of parks. In addition to four existing and two planned parks, Eagle Island State Park at the city’s western edge provides another 500 acres of riding trails and recreational opportunities.
Golfing also adds to the city’s spacious climate with Eagle Hills Golf Course (built in 1960) and Banbury Golf Course (built in 1999) located inside the city limits. Shadow Valley is found on the perimeter of Eagle within the city’s area of impact.
As a friendly and family oriented town, the community promotes many annual events that include Eagle Fun Days Festival with its Wet and Wild Parade and the World’s Largest Rocky Mountain Oyster Feed, a traditional July 4th Celebration with games and fireworks, Halloween activities, and an old fashioned Country Christmas.
With the Boise metropolitan area just a short drive away, Eagle offers a climate of country living in close proximity to the business and cultural elements found in the state’s largest city – a combination that makes this “rurban” community a unique and enjoyable place to live.
