#ThrowbackThursday McEuen Park in Coeur d’Alene

By | Architecture, Landscape Design, News | No Comments

#ThrowbackThursday to one of Bernardo Wills’ favorite landscape architecture achievements – the McEuen Park Redevelopment for the City of Coeur d’Alene. The team’s primary objective included creating a destination park and gathering space for the public while incorporating amenities and features to compliment the venue’s spectacular waterfront setting on Lake Coeur d’Alene. What’s that they say about location, location, location? This park has that and more – Centennial Trail access, an interactive playground and splash pad, public art spaces, a dog park, sports courts, an amphitheater, and more! In 2015, the McEuen Park Redevelopment won a Merit Award from the American Society of Landscape Architects Idaho & Montana Chapter. As our weather heats up, put McEuen on your list for cooling off at the splash pad or heading to the lake, and enjoy!
