Kuna is a smaller rural city in Ada County, Idaho. It is part of the Boise City–Nampa, Idaho Metropolitan Statistical Area. However, Kuna is one of the fastest-growing areas in Idaho, having nearly tripled in population between 2000 and 2010.
Kuna is commonly misspelled and mispronounced as “Koona”, but is correctly pronounced /kyo͞ona/.
Originally a railroad stop for coaches heading to, Kuna is conveniently located less than 20 miles from the big city, allowing homeowners to enjoy the slower pace and wide open spaces of country living, with the convenience of a short commute to Boise.
A small seasonal creek, Indian Creek, runs through the city. It is now used as an irrigation canal, filled by the New York Canal from the Boise River Diversion Dam. One of the few small floatable waterways in the region, Indian Creek is a favorite swimming spot for local residents.
