Person Field To Get Upgrade

A playground, parking lot, smart irrigation and revamped restrooms are a sampling of the changes proposed in the master plan for Person Field. The Coeur d'Alene City Council will vote Sept. 2 on the plan, which has already gained approval from the council's General Services Committee. City crews are getting ready to prep the site for the first phase of the plan - a new playground, according to interim Parks Director Bill Greenwood. The Coeur d'Alene Association of Realtors donated $30,000 earlier this year to purchase the playground equipment. "It's a really cool thing that they wanted to step up," Greenwood said. "This town blows me away. People just want to pitch in. They donated the money and now we're going to get it done"/Taryn Thompson, Coeur d'Alene Press. More here.

DFO: I'm still miffed that Coeur d'Alene resident had to pay for a park that it had given to the Coeur d'Alene School District some time back. But I'm delighted that the city is moving ahead with upgrades that will benefit the surrounding neighborhood.

Question: Can you suggest other upgrades that the city should consider for Person Field?
