Community leaders will dedicate McEuen Park on Saturday during a celebration that will include comments from dignitaries, a free lunch, live music, a ribbon-cutting and plenty of time to enjoy the world-class lakeside park. It all kicks off at 11 a.m. at the Grand Staircase near the main entrance to the park at Fourth Street and Front Avenue. Officials are anticipating hundreds of people to attend and the forecast calls for partly cloudy skies with highs in the low- to mid-70s. Plans are to activate the expansive and colorful splash pad for the dedication. “This will be a wonderful day for the entire community to come together and celebrate an amazing public gathering spot that will showcase our beautiful downtown for generations to come,” said Bill Greenwood, acting city parks director. The east end of the park has been open since May 2/Keith Erickson, Coeur d'Alene Today.
