If you are considering Eagle for your next home, you will learn that aside from the quaint atmosphere of downtown Eagle, there are a variety of outdoor activities within 5 minutes of most areas in Eagle. The greenbelt runs along the Boise River, speaking of the Boise River, if you enjoy fishing, kayaking, floating on a lazy summer afternoon your are in luck these opportunities are just south of downtown Eagle. Bike enthusiasts are seen on road bikes on a Saturday morning or catch BMX racing at the Eagle Bike Park, locally referred to as the Veladrome, at the northwest boarder of the city. If hiking is on your itinerary, the Ridge to Rivers systems connect many trails from various parts of the Boise area to Eagle. Bike, walk or run for miles and never get tired of the same trails.
Parks are a highlight of Eagle, Gerber Park offers soccer and baseball fields along with a large play structure, spash pads and areas to reserve for large parties. Merrill Park offers the same amenities close to downtown and the river.

Community is the reason home buyers return to Eagle after visiting. There is something special starting with the friendly environment in the neighborhoods to the restaurants, coffee shops and boutiques. Every smile on the street or wave from the car is a greeting that is genuine and an atmosphere that makes you feel comfortable and at home. This is the way we treated our friends and neighbors in the beginning and it has carried through the years. If you like what you hear then you might just love Eagle.
