We really enjoyed all that the park offered. There is a beach area for swimming. A large playground area. They even have a carousel ride. And there are plenty of large shade trees.

This park is full of people, kid and dog watching opportunities. The July weather is perfect and everyone is out doing something. The park is a magnet for young and old. Come on by!

This park is right next to CDA lake and has the best playground I have ever seen. Always take my grandchildren here for a fun day. There is also a wonderful carousel that has been added for more fun.

This park is one of the most beautiful I've ever seen, there's a new carousel (actually it's the original from the 1940's) that has been refurbished and brought home to Coeur d'Alene!

Very well laid out and developed park along shore of lake. Includes museums, basketball courts, child play equipment, historical ball field and soooo many large beautiful trees. Stringent rules about no dogs on grass. Also has beach front access on sandy beaches.

It was $1 per hour, first hour free when we were there. You pay at a fee station.
