Parks & Waterways Improvements

McGuire Park

Renovation of McGuire Park is currently underway. Improvements to the park will include an expanded parking area, new information kiosk and new fencing.

Mowry Park on Lake Coeur d'Alene

We just completed construction and installation of 3,400 square feet of new docks with an encapsulated swim area and floating restroom building. This project includes a state of the art design utilizing steel flotation and concrete decking that should last in excess of 40 years. We were able to build this $425,000 project using no general fund tax dollars.

  • Airport
  • Cataldo flood mitigation properties
  • Cataldo levy

Harrison Breakwater Replacement Project

This project is currently getting underway. Phase 1 of the project will address the construction of a 6,000 square feet wave attenuation structure necessary to protect the City of Harrison shoreline, a private marina, and the County’s largest public marina with an estimated replacement cost of $2,000,000. This project utilizes four separate recreational grants to fund Phase 1. No general fund tax dollars will be used.
