About the Kiwanis Club of Coeur d'Alene
Kiwanis Club of Coeur d’Alene is the original Kiwanis Club in the Coeur d'Alene area and was founded in 1925. In 1927, for $7500, our club purchased 100 acres of water front land on the beautiful Spokane River. As it turns out, it was a very wise investment. In 2000 we sold off approximately 40 acres and, because of that, it makes us one of the only self-sustaining clubs in the world.
The Kiwanis Club of Coeur d’Alene received $150,000 from the Higgins family (former club members) and that money was used to create Kiwanis Park (see photo above) as we know it today, which was dedicated in April 2001.
Covering 40 acres, Kiwanis Park draws locals and tourists with its lush and beautiful surroundings and many amenities, including picnic areas, picnic shelters, restrooms, beach access, and trails. Kiwanis Park has become a staple in the community and is often the site for frisbee golf tournaments, school day-retreats, high school cross country track meets, family reunions, and much more.
The Kiwanis Club of Coeur d'Alene leases Kiwanis Park to the City of Post Falls for $1.00 per year. The City of Post Falls serves as manager for the park. If you are interested in scheduling an event at Kiwanis Park, please visit the City of Post Falls website.
