“Beautiful Park”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 10, 2012

My wife and I just love CDA Park and Independence Point. During the summer months, there seems to always ne something to do in the park. The free Summer comcerts in the park are very well done and very enjoyable. The 4th of July fire works in the Lake just off Independence point is wonderful and draws folks from all over. There is a walking/bike path that circles NIC ( North Idaho College) and 1/2 of the loop takes you by the lake. Be certain to brong FRESH bread to feed the Canadian Geese and duckies in the Water Fowl feeding area at the north west portion of the loop, just as you enter the "Dike Road". If you are into picnics, there are ammple tables and fire pits available. The kiddies playground in the center of CDA park is great. I take my now 3 year old grandson there and he enjoys housr of great fun. The beach at Indepencence Point/CDA Park has life gards in the summer only. The lake water is very chilly until after the 4th of July so expect upper 50's to low 60's for water temperatures. There are two very clean restrooms in the park proper and several restrooms along the lake loop. I have never seen the bathrooms in other than a state of hgh cleanliness. ( Flush toilets) . When you finish in the park, downtown CDA is just a brief walk away. Bring the babies and strollers as there is sidewalks a plenty and all flat ( no hills to navigate)...Come enjoy our beautiful park and please read the signs....NO Dogs or alcohol allowed i the park or on the beach.

“Pretty waterfront park”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 27, 2012

We stopped in Coeur d’Alene for breakfast and a quick leg stretch whilst traveling along the interstate. We were very much pleasantly surprised by the water front park and how attractive and well looked after the area was. Due to the time of the day is was quiet and we enjoyed a walk in the park and along the lake edge.

“FUN!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 29, 2012

We spent most of our summer going to this park and lake. Its a huge park with a play ground for children and tables and bbqs for picnics. there is plenty of room so your disturbed by anyone. The lake is great also. The beach is on the smaller side so you are in close quarters with other beach goers but everyone is friendly and plays in the water with each other just fine!
