Environment & Recreation

In 2030, greater Coeur d’Alene has protected its lakes and rivers, even as our city has grown…

Waterways and shorelines remain our community’s distinctive feature. We have preserved open spaces and natural areas, and enhanced the urban forest that beautifies and blends our city with nature. An integrated trail system connects walkers, runners and bicyclists to parks, recreational facilities, and open spaces. We have expanded recreational facilities and increased opportunities for our youth to connect with nature. Coeur d’Alene’s sustainability programs and watershed planning protect its natural resources. Our residential and commercial recycling rates are among the highest in the nation.
