Downtown Coeur d'Alene will be adorned with 25,890 new plants this summer as work on the new Centennial Trail corridor and McEuen Park wraps up. "When you have 20 acres of park to work with, you have a lot of area to introduce new plants," said Landscape Architect Dell Hatch of Welch Comer Engineers. "There is more opportunity to accent and highlight the park's features." Upon completion, the McEuen Park will be home to 202 trees, 2,350 shrubs, 1,922 ornamental grasses and 366 ground covers, Hatch said. Those will be in addition to the existing trees that were left in the park. ... John Barlow, who is managing the Centennial Trail improvements for the Hagadone Corporation, said The Resort will put in 50 new trees, 6,000 juniper plants and 15,000 flowering plants/Jeff Selle, Coeur d'Alene Press.
