This community is located near the corner of E Locust Lane and Southside Boulevard in Nampa and is several acres large. It is dotted with about a dozen homes and a few dozen more open lots for new construction. The homes that already exist are recently erected ranch style homes.

They also have varying amounts of bathrooms; some of them have as few as 2 and others as many as 3½. Their lots are, on average, are around 22 acres in size and have both fenced and unfenced backyards which allows for all kinds of outdoor activities.

It is the perfect place for people who want to come home to a relaxing place every night, no matter what kind of daily lifestyle they lead during the day. This atmosphere is thanks to its remote location and surrounding greenery.

It is also bordered on one side by an irrigation canal and a branch of Indian Creek.
Lava Springs is made up of only a few streets that loop around one another forming several cul de sacs and so forth. These streets connect with more major roads at two points on both its north and east parts of the subdivision. However, there is more than just roads in Lava Springs. Surrounding the outside perimeter of the neighborhood is a system of walking paths. These paths are designed for not only transportation and exercise, but for relaxation as well.

However, if they do not want to play around the water, there are also places for hikes, sightseeing, shooting, and all sorts of other exciting outdoor activities.
