BLM plans Spokane River park

A dock, beach and picnic area are envisioned for a future park along the Spokane River in Post Falls. The Bureau of Land Management is seeking comments on a conceptual plan for its undeveloped 2.5-acre site on the north side of the river along Maplewood Avenue just east of the Riverside Harbor subdivision. "Ross Point (the general area of the site) is one of the few remaining public access points on the Spokane River for recreational activities," said Mitch Owens, BLM outdoor recreation planner. "Our goal is to work with our partners (such as the city of Post Falls, Kootenai County and Avista Utilities) and neighbors to create a well-maintained, fee-free family day-use site." The dock would be used for fishing or to tie small boats to, Owens said/Brian Walker, Coeur d'Alene Press. More here.
