Idaho Veteran’s Cemetery No Place For Recreation, Dogs

(Boise, ID) - The Idaho State Veterans Cemetery and Ada County remind recreational trail users near the Veterans Cemetery to obey posted rules and stay on designated trails. Ada County and its partners provide over eight miles of recreational trails on County land in Seaman Gulch and at the Velodrome, Big Springs, and Veterans Trailheads.

Some people and their pets have been causing problems by going off-trail and using the Idaho State Veterans’ Cemetery for recreation. People walking past interment ceremonies and loose dogs in fountains and marking headstones desecrate the final resting place of our military veterans. Officials warn that recreational use of the cemetery is illegal and trespassers will be cited.

Ada County and Veterans Cemetery managers request people help honor the memory of America’s fallen heroes by recreating only on open, recreational trails.

For further information, contact John Caywood, Ada County Open Space & Trail Coordinator at 577-4580 or Zach Rodriguez, Veterans Cemetery Manager, at 334-4796.
