Accessibility

Welcome Centers

  • Info Booth – The Info Booth is located behind the Boise Art Museum, on the south side, along the curved Sculpture Garden fence.
  • Welcome Centers – There are 3 Welcome Centers, two on the east and west ends of Rembrandt Road, and one on the north side of the Rose Garden. Look for tents with the Boise Art Museum logo on top.
  • For locations, please visit the Map page.

Parking and Shuttles

  • Accessible Parking – There are disabled permit parking spots in Julia Davis Park, near the Rose Garden and Zoo Boise.
  • Additional Parking – Boise State University’s Brady Garage and ParkBOI downtown public parking garages have special all-day rates on select days.
  • Free Shuttles – There are free shuttles to and from Art in the Park with stops in the downtown area as well as the Boise Towne Square Mall.
  • Accessible Shuttles – Only some of the shuttles are accessible. We can’t guarantee where they will be.
  • Drop Off Locations – By showing a disabled parking permit, you can be dropped off in the Accessible Parking lots near the Rose Garden and Zoo Boise. If you do not have a permit, the safest drop off point is the small 5th St cul-de-sac on the south side of Myrtle St. There is a short, paved path from the cul-de-sac directly into the park.
  • For more details about shuttle routes and parking, please visit the Parking & Shuttles page.

Accessible Restrooms

Accessible restrooms are located in:

  • the permanent structure midway in Julia Davis Park
  • the shaded picnic pavilion in the southeast corner
  • the portable restrooms near the Children’s Art Tent (northwest)
  • the portable restrooms near the Gene Harris Bandshell (southwest)

Look for the accessible restroom icons on the Map page.

Seating

  • Standard and Accessible Picnic Tables – Picnic tables have been placed throughout the event and near food vendor locations. A few of these tables are wheelchair accessible.
  • Your Own Seating – You are welcome to bring your own blankets or folding chairs to use on the grass in low-traffic areas. The area in front of the Gene Harris Bandshell stage is a great location for this.

Wheelchair Accessibility

  • Borrow a Wheelchair – A limited number of wheelchairs are available to be checked out for free during the event. Please visit the Info Booth to checkout or return a wheelchair.
  • Pathways – Most artist and food vendors are located on packed ground with grass. The ground is relatively flat, but uneven in spots. There are two paved pathways in the park: Rembrandt Road, a wide asphalt path running east-west, and a curvy cement footpath that runs north-south in the east end of the event, perpendicular to Rembrandt Road.
  • For more details, please visit the Map page.

Service Animals

  • Service animals are welcome at Art in the Park.
  • Event attendees are asked to leave their pets at home. However, there are numerous untrained dogs (and other animals) present at the event each year. Please use your own judgment on whether this will be a safe environment for your service animal.

Sighted Guides

  • A limited number of sighted Guides will be available for our guests with low vision or no vision, on a first-come, first-served basis during the following hours of the event:
    • Friday, 10:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m.
    • Saturday, 12:00 p.m. – 3:00 p.m.
    • Sunday, 2:00 p.m. – 5:00 p.m.
  • Sighted Guides offer an elbow for the guest to hold onto. They may describe walking surfaces, booth locations, artwork, and the general surroundings.
  • Sighted Guides will remain with the guest for up to one hour, unless the guest decides to end their visit earlier.
  • Please come to the Info Booth or any Welcome Center to request this service.

Sensory Information

Art in the Park is a large and busy event, with about 250,000 attendees over three days. If you are sensitive to sound, here are some suggestions to make your experience more enjoyable:

  • Earplugs – Free disposable earplugs are available at the Info Booth and all 3 Welcome Centers.
  • Live Music and Dance Performances – The Gene Harris Bandshell is in the southwest end of the park and may be loud during performances. Sound levels are lower in the east and north areas of the event. There are several hours of the event when no live entertainment is planned. To view the Performing Arts schedule, visit the Entertainment page.
  • Quieter Areas – To take a break from the event, the east end of Julia Davis Park, past Zoo Boise, is a less crowded and noisy area. The greenbelt pathway that runs along Julia Davis Drive on the south side of the event is a less crowded way to access this part of the park.
