Onsite Parking Options
- Idaho Water Center - General ($924 Annually) — No specific spot assigned, you may park in any un-marked stall in the three main parking garages within the courthouse corridor on a first come, first served basis. If the main covered garage directly beneath the Idaho Water Center is full, you will have to look for a spot in the covered garage beneath the apartment buildings directly west or in the covered garage beside the Boise courthouse within the same parking access area. Parking in any stalls marked guest or tandem will be subject to fines.
- Idaho Water Center - Surface ($660 Annually) — Limited parking, walk-up access to the front doors of the Idaho Water Center, uncovered and exposed to the elements.
- Idaho Water Center - Tandem ($528 Annually) — Located in the main covered garage directly beneath the Idaho Water Center, each tandem parking spot is assigned and shares access with one other parker. Your parking partner will be assigned and contact information will be sent to you. You will be responsible for coordinating parking schedules with your parking partner.
Please note: Parking is not available in the surrounding businesses’ parking lots.
