The Come Play! Campaign

20190914_181916.jpg

Ann Morrison Memorial Park was created through the combined efforts of Mr. Morrison, the Morrison-Knudsen Company, service clubs, neighborhood organizations, and individuals who donated labor, money, trees, sundial clocks—and even ducks.

 

Today, the Harry W. Morrison Foundation’s Come Play! Campaign intends to fund a major park renewal. We ask for your help to keep this gem of Boise sparkling for future generations.

 

Our campaign goal is to raise $2 million, which will garner $4 million in matching support: $2 million from the City of Boise and $2 million from the Harry W. Morrison Foundation.

In 2018, the City of Boise and the Harry Morrison Foundation joined forces to study public enthusiasm for projects suggested by  Ann Morrison Park’s updated master plan. The study narrowed the list of potential park improvements to a few key upgrades the public was passionate about.
