What exactly is the Depot Bench?

The Depot Bench is located just south of downtown Boise and within a five-minute walk to the Boise State University and the Boise River Greenbelt.

This Bench area is known for its beautiful views of the Downtown Skyline and the Boise Foothills. It is also known for its entertaining community theater with the Stage Coach Theatre.

The Depot Bench is probably best known for the Boise Depot, a beautiful Spanish style historic railroad depot built in 1925.

The Boise Depot sits high on the bench overlooking the State Capitol, the Boise River, the Foothills and the Downtown area. It is no longer a train depot but is owned by the City of Boise for public and private events.
