Keep Garden City Wierd

André Souza, Managing Editor

Garden City is unlike anywhere else in Idaho. Nestled on the banks of the Boise River, it’s a place where rugged individualism meets creativity, and where a community has been built around eccentricity. Unfortunately, gentrification has started to take hold among the city, as real estate developers see money to be made in river-front property. The charm and character of this city-within-a-city is starting to erode, but luckily, much of the community is holding strong. They don’t plan to give up their houses, their stores, or their surf spots anytime soon, and their mission is clear; Keep Garden City Weird for as long as humanly possible.
