Welcome to the Kuna, Idaho

I have to admit, before I met my wife and she convinced me to move to Kuna, I knew very little about it and all the awesome things there are to do here. Kuna is doing a great job of adding in new things and throwing great events.

Lets start with the natural parts of Kuna and the things you can’t find anywhere else but here.  One of the more popular known things to do here is visit and go spelunking in the Kuna Caves.  Though they have been hit with graffiti, but it is still fun to take the 50 ft decent into this old lava tube that is said to have continued all the way to the Snake River at one point. Currently you can go about 1/4 mile north in the cave before the tunnels get too small to move through.

A little closer to town, and one of my favorite places to hang out, is Indian Creek.  Though it runs dry in the winter time, the rest of the year provides lots of fun and activities.  One of the

favorite uses for this creek is dropping your raft, tub or flotation device of choice in the water at Stroebel road and float down stream and cross many areas of rapids (more aggressive than the Boise River) for miles down stream.  Along the way you have many options to take out,  as the waters get rougher the farther you go, the main takeout is just before the bridge in Crimson Point Sub.  Indian Creek also provides opportunity to cool off in the hot summer sun.  There are places shallow and slow enough to just wade a bit and deeper spots to swim or jump from a rope swing.  Last but not least, my favorite activity– fishing.  When the water fills up, some native fish fill the stream and Idaho Fish and Game stocks it with hatchery trout.  The fishing can be very good if you can find the right spots.

Just off the waters of Indian Creek, the fun continues right in Bernie Fisher Park.  This city park has an 18 hole Frisbee golf  course (recently expanded). It's a great course with plenty to look at and you cover a lot of ground.  Along the river bank runs Kuna’s own version of the Greenbelt, it is quite awesome if I say so myself. Recently added to this are some beautiful sitting areas with shade cover and opening very soon will be Kuna's first splash pad.  This park hosts many events such as the Kuna Farmers Market, Kuna Days Celebration, Car Shows and also has a band-shell you can rent for your own event.   The park also features a playground, BMX dirt jumps, skate park, several baseball fields and during the summer months, Movies in the Park for Friday nights.  Kuna also features 9 other parks that include the following; Arbor RidgeButlerChaparossaCrimson PointFarm EstatesSadie

Creek, Green BeltWinchester and my other favorite, Nicholson Park.  Nicholson park is host to Sego Praire Pond which is regularly stocked with fish an is a great spot to take the kids out for an easy catch.

Are you looking for a little of night life and some good grub? One of the hottest place around to get your dance and drink on is Cowgirls.  People come from all over the valley to party at this great club. Looking for a little less crowd, try one of the several small bars in town; Longhorn Lounge, Red Eye Salon and The Arlene. Speaking of people coming from miles around to Kuna, Enrique’s El Gallo Giro is the place everybody comes looking for when they want great Mexican food.  All over the Treasure Valley when someone ask for a great Mexican restaurant, everyone sends them to Enrique’s.  Also in town we have the Smokey Mountain Pizza, Quik Wok, Lima Limon, Rice Works and several other chain restaurants.  Need a cup of joe, try a stop at Latte Da.  Kuna's downtown revitalization has brought many great changes and new business are coming all the time.

Just south of town there is Kuna Butte, this is a great place to come out and ride your horse,  ATV’s, motorcycles, UTV’s, or just take your truck on a 4×4 adventure.  There are a couple different spots for target practice as well.  The area is not very big but it is close to home and great for an afternoon outing.  There are a few geocaches hidden up here too if you’re up to doing a little hiking around.

Just beyond the Kuna Caves and Kuna Butte you find yourself right smack in the Snake River Birds of Prey National Conservation Area.  Here you will find yourself amongst Raptors and Owls.  This area is vast and large with plenty of bird watching, wildlife viewing, fishing, boating and hiking to do. After you’re about 20 miles south of town you will find yourself at Swan Falls Dam and Reservoir with plenty of fishing to do and amazing views to take in.

Back to Kuna now, after all this fun, why not get married in a Castle. Yes Kuna has its very own castle that can be rented out for weddings and events.  So if you want to get married or just host a corporate event, find out more details on the Kuna Castle website – here. (currently for sale if you would like to own a castle) 

Kuna also ranks on the high end of the scale for education in Idaho.  Currently we have 7 elementary schools, 2 middle and 2 high schools.  Find out more about the KunaSchool District – Go Kavemen!  There also seems to be endless sports opportunities available to our young kids; football, softball, baseball, top wrestling program, tennis, scouts, karate, soccer and so on…..

There is my Kuna, Idaho rundown.  If I think of more items to add I will be back to add them to this page.  If you think you would like to live in this great little town give me a holler at (208)996-6507, I would love to help you find your new home!
