Exciting news for Coeur d’Alene park lovers! Cherry Hill Park has been selected for “Heart Your Park,” a program introduced as part of Macy’s “Secret Garden” campaign that aims to raise awareness and dollars for local parks across the country.
From March 11-31, customers at Macy’s in the Silver Lake Mall can donate $1 or more at the register, with 100 percent of the donations benefiting Cherry Hill Park. To further spread the love, Macy’s will match the total customer donation across all stores, dollar for dollar, up to $250,000 in total.
Cherry Hill Park is one of 550 parks nationwide that will benefit from Macy’s “Heart Your Park” this spring. The park, off 15th Street in eastern Coeur d’Alene, was dedicated in September 2009. It boasts an 18 hole Disc Golf Course, an off-leash dog park, basketball, a BMX track, tennis, sledding, off-street parking, and restrooms.
“We are thrilled to partner with Macy’s and the National Park and Recreation Association for ‘Heart Your Park’ this spring,” said acting Coeur d’Alene Parks Director Bill Greenwood. “Through this wonderful program and donations by Macy’s customers, we are excited about the increased awareness and additional funding for Cherry Hill Park.”
