Q’emiln Riverside Park & Trails
Q’emiln, which means "throat of the river", began as a Coeur d’Alene Indian Village, but later became part of property belonging to the town’s founder, Frederick Post. The park offers 90 acres of recreational land, with five miles of hiking trails. It is also a popular site for swimming and picnicking.
Plante’s Ferry Park
An interpretive sign in the park marks the place where the first known ferry crossings on the Spokane River were made between 1851 and 1864. Historians believe this river crossing made it possible for settlers to trade goods on a regular basis, enabling them to build strong commerce.
