Coeur d'Alene Place 101
Updated: Jan 6
Coeur d’Alene Place neighborhood is centrally located among Coeur d’Alene, Dalton Gardens, Hayden, Post Falls, and Rathdrum. Each phase of development in this family friendly neighborhood has provided additional convenience including parks, trails and bike paths, housing and style options, schools, a fire station, and businesses.
The network of trails throughout the Coeur d’Alene Place community connect to the Prairie Trail and the Centennial Trail. On the Centennial Trail you can enjoy hundreds of miles of scenery with mountain, lake, and river views while staying on paved trail throughout the Spokane and North Idaho area. About 1-2 miles onto The Centennial Trail you can also directly access the Kroc Center and Ramsey Park. More recently developed, the Prairie Trail strolls through the fields beyond The Landings/Hawk's Nest and The Trails subdivisions which are all adjacent to CDA Place.
There are many amenities that are walking distance or a quick drive from the neighborhood. Several grocery stores are less than ten minutes away by car, including Super 1, Fred Meyer (includes gas, apparel, and Starbucks), Target (includes apparel and Starbucks), Albertsons (includes gas), and Walmart (includes gas and apparel). The three closest gas stations are within walking distance or about a five minute drive and include Maverick on Ramsey Road, Exxon at the Prairie Avenue and Ramsey Road intersection and Conoco on Kathleen Avenue. The transfer station and I90 freeway are both about 5 min away as well. If you’re looking for quick access to shopping, the Coeur d’Alene Place is a quick drive to several stores including Target, TJ Maxx, Ulta, Pier 1, Best Buy, Bath and Body Works, Kohl’s, Macy’s, The Village at Riverstone (which includes our Regal movie theater), and the Hayden Plaza.
Three schools serve the Coeur d’Alene Place Neighborhood. Lake City High School is a 9th through 12th grade school, Woodland Middle School is a 6th through 8th grade school, and Skyway Elementary is the Kindergarten through 5th grade school. An additional school for Coeur d’Alene School District is being built on Prairie Avenue to the North of the Coeur d’Alene Place. This new school and Atlas Elementary could both host students from Coeur d’Alene place in case capacity is exceeded at Skyway Elementary. Each school conveniently acts as host to school and district sporting events, local voting hubs, and community events throughout the year.

Parks are abundant in the Coeur d’Alene Place area. Blue Grass Park is the largest one located at the heart of the subdivision. It includes a traditional jungle gym park, a splash pad, a gazebo that can be privately rented for a special occasions, disc golf, basketball courts, a large grass area, and a measured "track" loop for walkers and runners. Several other parks provide grass areas and jungle gyms. Coeur d’Alene Place also offers three different community gardens. Find the application to reserve garden plots here.
There is a wide variety to choose from when it comes to buying a house in CDA Place. New construction is currently offered by Greenstone Homes and Aspen Homes with many blocks still being built and a range of home floor plans and designs to choose from (contact me if you'd like more info on building a new home). Resale properties for sale in the Coeur d’Alene Place area currently range from $225,000 to $580,000. Investors tend to find this area desirable for rental homes due to all of the amenities, but there are a plethora of homeowner occupants as well. You can find single family houses and townhouses for sale or apartments down the road for lease. There are also sections for 55+ older living, gated streets, and "low-maintenance" homes within the subdivision too. There is something for everyone!
It seems to be a fair claim that the Coeur d’Alene Place is our area’s largest and most centrally located neighborhood.
