The Treasure Valley (Boise/ Nampa area) is one of the largest and most popular in the Northwest. However, it is usually considered when it comes to amazing places to live. Boise, for instance, is not usually appreciated for all the amazing homes and amenities it offers residents and when it comes to homes, nothing compares to the West Boise area of the valley. West Boise is the part of the city that borders Meridian and it is probably one of the best places for new construction and buying pre-existing homes in the city. Among these amazing homes is the Hickories subdivision. Though it was first constructed several years ago, its homes are still coveted and well-taken care of. The Hickories itself is a large neighborhood with approximately 100+ units. The houses in the Hickories are all different, custom built when the neighborhood was first being developed. They are mainly ranch and craftsman style in design, and they are quite luxurious. A home in the Hickories will have 3 to 5 bedrooms a piece, as well as up to 4 bathrooms. When it comes to interior space, these homes will range from around 2,500 - 4,000+ square feet each making them large and open, perfect for any kind of indoor activity. Most homes in the Hickories are built on large lots that range from 0.24 acres to nearly a half an acre. These spaces are open, and usually unfenced. Their exterior facades differ from house to house, but they all have some sort of garage attached the either the front or the side of the home.

In the realm of amenities, the Hickories is also very up to date. Aside from the usual sidewalks and shade trees, the Hickories is also one of the quietest neighborhoods in this part of town. The hickories only have a handful of entrances and they are built in such a way to deter people who are not intentionally going there away. The Hickories is not located on a busy street, but its secluded nature cuts down on what little noise there would be.
On the border of the Hickories and an equally amazing neighborhood (the De Meyer Park Subdivision) is the famous De Meyer Park. De Meyer Park is a very well-known park in the area which was once the farm of the man De Meyer. He donated it to the city and it was made into the fantastic park it is today. De Meyer has open fields for sports and games, shade for relaxation, playground, volleyball net (with sand), and a duck pond. This isn’t all that the park has. There is a basketball court, a covered pavilion, bathrooms, and baseball or softball diamonds. It is also cut in half by a canal that runs diagonally through the park-- however, there are plenty of bridges to get from one side to the other-- and there is an old silo from the farm that once stood on the land, both of which make for some amazing landscapes that can be enjoyed by visitors.
