The greenbelt is a delightful place to take a walk when the weather is nice. There is public art, grass spaces, picnic tables all over both sides of the river. Enjoy some sunshine and outdoor time between May and October.

A nice place to do some sightseeing. Beautiful in the summertime but equally gorgeous in the winter. The walkways are kept free from snow and ice making it a safe walk. The falls are breathtaking!

I thought the Idaho Japanese pavilion was a masterful design of natural rock - lava and aged trees and flowing water. There are two wooden decks overlooking the river. The cool breeze of water from a small waterfall cools the area under the pavilion. There...More

We walked along here in the early evening on a travel stop over and thoroughly enjoyed! Lots of families out enjoying the scenery as well. The scenery is beautiful but definitely man made influences (not all natural).

The complete walk is 5.3 miles. We walked from the falls for about an hour at a leisurely place. Lots of roller blades, bikes and family's strolling. You will enjoy it

There are some spots for fishing along the Snake River. I have only seen one or two people. I would suggest you go out of the city limits a little further down the river. The Greenbelt is more for walking around.
