McEuen Park Plan Unveiled

A team charged with developing a new vision for the current McEuen Field has come up with some state-of-the art features such as a giant water fountain, a meeting point that displays public art with walking paths through it, and a large plaza.

That means a couple of current facilities will be eliminated, such as the boat launch and the parking lot. Consultants on the project say not to worry though, that parking with actually double with a new three-level underground parking lot stretching from Third to Sixth streets.

Here are more details, and how you can put in your two cents, from the Coeur d'Alene Presss. Sounds like this park has a little of everything, including ADA access to trails. Since this is just a 'wish list' basically, is there anything else you'd like to see included?
