This is a nice park on Lake Coeur d'Alene with good parking, boat docks and nice walking trails. It has public toilets and in the summer a snack bar.

Took a walk along the lake, it was nice and relaxing. Saw swimmers on the lake, so I guess it must be clean as well. Lots of water activities are available too.

I loved walking around this park. It's situated right next to Coeur d'Alene Resort and the Brooks Seaplanes (out at the end of the dock -- which I highly recommend for a fun flight...see my other review about that). The park was clean and beautiful.
