Scott Reed’s History Of McEuen Park

Coeur d'Alene attorney Scott Reed provides Huckleberries Online with a four-page history of McEuen Field, which concludes with this observation:

"Public attendance has exceeded all expectations and will continue to do so. At the first opening of this area last month, the children's playgrounds were jammed. Kevin, who is the maintenance man in our building, told me he had taken his 6-year-old granddaughter to the playground upon its opening, spent four hours with her and then when he started to leave his granddaughter began crying because she was having so much fun and didn't want to leave. The message here is that those who still oppose the idea of McEuen Park are going to lose any argument that they may have with a 6-year-old girl. You can read Scott's history of McEuen Field here.

Question: Anyone change their mind about McEuen Park after once opposing its reconstruction?
