You may not be able to entirely flee the heat, but you can have a little fun with it by heading to a park, playground, splash pad, lakefront or woodsy retreat this weekend. Or just head to McEuen Park in downtown Coeur d’Alene for the whole sizzling enchilada. Saturday is the first big community celebration in the newly rebuilt urban oasis next to Tubbs Hill and Lake Coeur d’Alene. It’s part of the city’s annual Parks Day, presented by the parks department and Panhandle Parks Foundation, and includes a free breakfast, lunch and dinner with lots of activities and entertainment piled between. Newcomers can explore the park’s amenities and learn some insights on the design concepts using The Spokesman-Review’s new online walking tour of McEuen/Scott Maben, SR. More here.
