Nice Area!

This is possibly the jewel of the city. It's a well-maintained city park that offers ambience, sights, activities, and atmosphere for anyone!

Had my husband's family reunion at the City Park and had reserved the gazebo. Had around 90 people - cooked our dogs/hamburgers and had salads, etc. Everyone could fit under gazebo which was great since it rained for a while (first rain in weeks!) but a good time was had by all. Just a quick walk to lake and the... More

The playground was awesome and beautiful. We have never seen such a large well built wooden play structure. Our kids had a great time exploring the fort. There are lots of shades and picnic tables. Also there is a huge swimming beach nearby so you can jump into the lake when you get all so hot from playing at the... More

This park is a wonderful place to stay and spend the day. There are large shade trees throughout the park and there is a wonderful play area for the kids. The beach itself is clean and has a gentle slope so little children can play in the water without worrying about a deep drop-off. The park is also right next... More

A busy little place in the Heart of Coeur D'Alene. Relax on the beach, take a cruise of the lake, go for a swim. An easy stroll to some unique shopping and dining. Parking can be an issue sometimes but there are parking options just a few minutes away.

After having lunch at a great Italian restaurant within walking distance of the lake, we had a beautiful afternoon sitting on the steps by the beach, taking in the scenery. Had we had more time, we would have swam, rented kayaks, or taken a lake cruise. We would love to come back and spend the day.

This park has a very nice "boardwalk" (very wide cement strip), Lots of grassy areas with trees, playgrounds, and a wide sandy beach. There were a lot of families with children enjoying the beautiful day in the water and on the beach. Since it was a weekday, only every other lifeguard station was manned, but there are several stations. Public... More

Great city park. The layout in relationship to the lake seemed very well thought out. A good amount of beaches, ampitheaters (for musical entertainment) and a great frontier play park for the kids. The landscaping and the grass were beautiful.

Nice, well kept park equipped with plenty of shelters, picnic tables, a beautiful playground, large Sandy beach and an amazing boardwalk that circles the resort. Great way to spend a day or two!
