This afternoon, developers and local parks officials participated in a water splash to signify the beginning of Lake Riverstone, the manmade lake that'll become a Spokane River side park replacing the old Central Pre-Mix pit. Here, from left to right, Doug Eastwood, Coeur d'Alene Park Department; Neil O'Keeffe, SRM Development; Mike Tilford, SRM Development; John Stone, SRM Development; Steve Wetzel, Coeur d'Alene Parks Foundation; Sherry Lanarz, Coeur d'Alene Parks Foundation; Lee Shellman, Parks & Rec. Foundation; and Oscar Maria, SRM Development. (Family Phil, I believe, got chased recently by an attack security guard when he tried to get a closer look at this proposed watering hole.) All in all, we need to put our hands together to applaud the developers and city officials, like Eastwood, who are making this possible.
