McEuen Park: Mission Accomplished

After years of talking, planning, wrangling, dreaming and dissension, the transformation of the Coeur d'Alene waterfront from a mundane parking lot into a classy people's playground is now a pinch-me-it's-true reality. McEuen Park, officially opened two months ago, is the most dramatic change ever to hit the city of Coeur d'Alene. McEuen Park is huge. Like a fabulous, multifaceted emerald setting, the 20-acre project wraps around the town jewel, Tubbs Hill, from the west side of the waterfront to Sanders Beach on the east. Together, Tubbs Hill and McEuen Park add up to 140 acres of public space. That's one-sixth the size of New York City's Central Park with its millions of people. The park will continue to be a work in progress as trees grow tall, shrubs fatten, grass grows greener and the additional pieces of public art that have been commissioned are installed/Mary Lou Reed, Inlander. More here.

Question: Did you realize the McEuen Park/Tubbs Hill green space is 1/6th the size of New York's Central Park?
