Boise River Park Donor Recognition Packet


The Boise River Park (aka Boise Whitewater Park) is the latest addition to Boise’s riverfront park system. The park replaces an aging and unsafe irrigation diversion, provides a whitewater experience for both beginners and experts, and improves safety and accessibility for all river users.

I was hired to create a cohesive system for the park’s donor recognition projects like signage, rock inscriptions, bench options and bronze greenbelt inlays. Careful consideration was paid to the color palette, font selection and graphic images to reflect the neighborhood identity. For example, the chosen inscription font (Huxley Vertical) has clean lines and is thin and vertical, like a kayak. This font was designed in 1935, and imagery from the 1930s/40s help define the neighborhood voice in the 30th Street Cultural Arts Plan.

Phases Two and Three of the Park are in the planning stages and will provide more whitewater features downstream of the new wave shapers. This donor recognition packet provides options for recognizing those who donate to the cause.
