A recently added public space for the city, McEuen Park is the perfect place for the entire family to spend the day. Home to the city's largest playground, McEuen Park also features basketball courts, impressive pavilions, splash pad and a leash-free dog park. There's something to do for each family member!
Near downtown and adjacent to McEuen Park, Tubbs Hill is a publicly owned natural space featuring elevation and overlooks of Lake Coeur d'Alene. Miles of hiking trails stretch up and around Tubbs Hill including a 2.2-mile lakeside interpretive loop, which circles the hill.
Great for anytime-of-the-year nature walks and bald eagle viewing in the winter, Tubbs Hill is a popular outing for families, trail runners, and photography enthusiasts. Tubbs Hill can be accessed via different trailheads from surrounding city streets, and the trailhead on the southwest side of McEuen Park and Third Street features public restrooms and concessions.
Downtown Coeur d'Alene:
With shopping, dining, and live entertainment, something is always happening on the streets of downtown Coeur d'Alene. Surrounded by a beautiful waterfront area, the downtown area has over 100 retail stores, including specialty boutiques, fine art galleries, and antique shops for special treasures.
Dining can be enjoyed throughout the day in downtown. Community celebrations that take place in the downtown district include holiday lighting events, festive parades, and a weekly Farmers Market throughout the warmer months of the year.
Lake Coeur d'Alene holds the world's longest boardwalk. Spanning 3,300-feet across the lake (nearly three quarters of a mile), the boardwalk is certainly an impressive sight on the lake. Not only does it provide access to the marina, but it's also a great place to take in the tremendous lake views!
