Riverstone Pond, Kootenai County, Idaho

Radio Controlled model boats only. No swimming allowed
Riverstone Pond (In Riverstone Park) is a new 1 acre jewel just a few miles northwest of downtown Coeur d’Alene Idaho, and is nestled between the Spokane River and the new Riverstone Theaters and condos. Next to this park is a corporate park, retail center with restaurant, etc. The park includes play area, pavilion, amphitheater area, restrooms, picnic tables, two bar-b-q grills, open grass areas, and bike trails. The Pond is about 2 acres with a water fountain in the middle and is where the sailors who live in the Coeur d'Alene area and are members of Sailing the Inland NW RC Model Sailing Club hold most of their events and regattas. No dogs are allowed in the park but there is a trail marked by red which dogs are allowed to be walked on a leash. RC model power boaters must have a muffler on their boats to keep the noise level to a minimum.

Directions: Riverstone (Pond) Park is located on the outskirts of the city of Coeur d’Alene right off of NW Boulevard. From I90 take Exit 12 and go SE toward Coeur d'Alene city center (toward North Idaho College as the signs from the interstate indicate). Maps: To view a map click on http://www.mapquest.com and type in Coeur d’Alene, Idaho pan in and follow the supplied directions to locate the pond and River Stone. Currently in mapquest their map has not been updated to show the pond full of water.
