About New Homes and Communities in Garden City

Garden City is nearly surrounded by Boise but retains a separate municipal government. Garden City was named for gardens raised by Chinese immigrants who lived in the area. The name of the city's main street, Chinden Boulevard, is a portmanteau of the words "China" and "garden."

The Chinese community that once inhabited Garden City is largely gone, but it made an important contribution to the heritage of the city. The Chinese gardens and their row-crop farming acumen are the basis of the city’s name as well as that of the city’s principal thoroughfare, Chinden Boulevard.

Garden City Population


On May 22, 1949, Ada County commissioners approved incorporation of the village named Garden City, the name ostensibly derived from the village’s Chinese gardens. A group of Boise businessmen promoted incorporation so they could build a small “amusement center.” However, their true motives were to build gambling houses just outside the Boise city limits because the Boise City Council had just passed an ordinance banning gambling.
