Reaching the western edge of the Boise Metro Area and situated along the dazzling Boise River, sits Caldwell. Home to roughly 49,000 residents and growing, Caldwell is the county seat of Canyon County and a progressive community worth taking a look at.
One of the most historic cities in the state with a number of downtown buildings on the historic register, Caldwell embraces it’s past heritage but has taken steps, particularly in recent years, to partner that with a more modern take on it’s inherent charm and appeal. The revitalization of Indian Creek, a tributary of the Boise River which runs through the center of the city, incorporates scenic areas with a network of pathways and attractive landscaping to expand connections between neighborhoods and the downtown area; promoting healthy living and a vibrant, active community. A number of other projects are underway including: Roberts Recreational Center, Creek Plaza, and the Trolley Square Redevelopment Project.
In addition to Indian Creek Park, twelve other parks are meticulously maintained in this community where 77% of residents report physical activity as a leading leisure time activity. Memorial Park is perhaps the most comprehensive with a playground, tennis courts, swimming pool, museum, volleyball and basketball courts, skatepark, and lighted baseball fields. Sports fans will want to take advantage of Simplot Stadium which hosts a number of athletic programs. Residents also have access to trade shows, livestock events, and other community activities at O’Connor Field House and Charolais Barns with the Caldwell Night Rodeo at the CNR Arena topping the list. The Snake River runs through the area of Caldwell, providing amazing fishing and hunting in this area and people come from all over to participate in both of these activities.
Caldwell has not only prioritized focus on the aesthetics of the community, but on the social aspects of the community as well. Schools have a great reputation; with Thomas Jefferson Public Charter School being nationally ranked as a silver medal school. There is also an Annual Youth Forum where youth in the community meet together to address concerns, brainstorm solutions and make positive changes. West Valley Medical Center is a state-of-the-art healthcare facility providing a long list of comprehensive services, including emergency services and an intensive care unit.
And there is no shortage of community activities or opportunities for involvement in this eclectic and family-friendly town. Despite recent innovations, Caldwell still maintains that small-town and homey feel. The community hosts a number of popular festivals throughout the year, such as the Indian Creek Festival (with live entertainment and a rubber duck race), Treasure Valley Renaissance Festival, and Canyon County Fair. There are also numerous events that draw friends and neighbors together such as the 4th of July and Apple Pie Celebration, Community Pride Week, and Cinco de Mayo to name a few.
Caldwell is full of genuine folk living a simple life-style; and with Boise only 30 minutes away, you’ve got big city life on demand but never in your face. If you are looking for a wide variety of housing, neighborhood, and building options with a low cost of living, low crime rate, positive job growth, supportive atmosphere for entrepreneurs, and land that will grow almost anything, you’ll find it in Caldwell.
