Parks Day is brought to you courtesy of the Coeur d’Alene Parks Department and the Panhandle Parks Foundation. Sponsors include Waste Management, Greenstone Homes, Kootenai Electric Co-op, Transtector Systems, J.U.B. Engineers, Hecla Mining, Parker Toyota, Architects West, and the Hallock Family.
Parks Day originated in 2008 when the Parks Master Plan survey revealed that quite a few Coeur d’Alene citizens did not know the locations of many of their city parks. Each year, Parks Day spotlights different parks. For more information and the schedule of events, please visit http://parks.cdaid.org or contact Katie Kosanke, 415-0415.
