Coeur d’Alene is filled with art. Along the downtown streets utility boxes are painted, and there are many outdoor sculptures. Along the Centennial Trail and in parks there are big outdoor sculptures. Next to parking lots there are big sculptures. Here are some I found:

Here are just a few of the painted utility boxes. The Moose is a favorite here in town. There are Moose sculptures in the park, a Moose sculpture on top of a local commercial building, and various Moose sculptures scattered around to signal the Moose trail that leads to and over Tubbs hill and around other areas.
This is a sculpture of Chief Morris Antelope, a Chief of one of the local tribes. This sculpture is along the Centennial trail heading west, just before Hwy 95 crosses it. This is next to the Spokane River.
This carved Eagle is in the city park, next to the lake and Centennial trail. You can see Tubbs Hill in the background and also the Rotary Bandstand mentioned in my previous CDA post (link at the bottom).
This sculpture is next to an art gallery and parking lot. I’m not sure if it is a big bunny or what 🙂
This lyrical sculpture is next to Tubbs Hill, the lake, and lake front grass area that is between Coeur d”Alene resort and the library. The area has basketball courts, a dog park, a playground, wooden bench swings, and lovely paths to walk.

So if you are in the area, come check out this gem of a city. There are numerous lakes north of here, wonderful parks, lots of art, friendly people, and many beautiful places to explore in and around the area.
