Island Park Profile


Overview

Island Park is a tiny city located in the state of Idaho. With a population of 272 people and just one neighborhood, Island Park is the 118th largest community in Idaho.

Island Park home prices are not only among the most expensive in Idaho, but Island Park real estate also consistently ranks among the most expensive in America.

Occupations and Workforce

Island Park is a decidedly white-collar city, with fully 92.73% of the workforce employed in white-collar jobs, well above the national average. Overall, Island Park is a city of sales and office workers, managers, and service providers. There are especially a lot of people living in Island Park who work in sales jobs (38.18%), office and administrative support (11.82%), and food service (11.82%).

One interesting thing about the economy is that relatively large numbers of people worked from their home: 11.82% of the workforce. While this number may seem small overall, as a fraction of the total workforce this is high compared to the rest of the county. These workers are often telecommuters who work in knowledge-based, white-collar professions. For example, Silicon Valley has large numbers of people who telecommute. Other at-home workers may be self-employed people who operate small businesses out of their homes.


Setting & Lifestyle

Another notable thing is that Island Park is an extremely popular destination for tourists and seasonal residents. So much of the population is seasonal such that the city’s population swells significantly during the vacation season, and drops again when the season ends. Because of this, much of the local economy is centered around tourism; some businesses may be operated only during the high season. During the low season, year-round residents will notice that the city is a substantially quieter place to live.

Because of many things, Island Park is a very good place for families to consider. With an enviable combination of good schools, low crime, college-educated neighbors who tend to support education because of their own experiences, and a high rate of home ownership in predominantly single-family properties, Island Park really has some of the features that families look for when choosing a good community to raise children. Is Island Park perfect? Of course not, and if you like frenetic nightlife, it will be far from your cup of tea. But overall this is a solid community, with many things to recommend it as a family-friendly place to live.

It is a fairly quiet city because there are relatively few of those groups of people who have a tendency to be noisy. (Children, for example, often can't help themselves from being noisy, and being parents ourselves, we know!) Island Park has relatively few families with children living at home, and is quieter because of it. Renters and college students, for their own reasons, can also be noisy. Island Park has few renters and college students. But the biggest reason it is quieter in Island Park than in most places in America, is that there are just simply fewer people living here. If you think trees make good neighbors, Island Park may be for you.

Island Park is a small city, and as such doesn't have a public transit system that people use to get to and from their jobs every day.

Island Park Demographics
