Browne's Addition comes together to celebrate gazebo renovation | Community Spirit
The Browne's Addition neighbor came together on Thursday night to officially welcome the renovated Coeur d'Alene Gazebo.
“This gazebo is just incredible,” said Councilman Jon Snyder before reading Mayor Condon's official proclamation declaring Thursday, August 15th as Coeur d'Alene Gazebo Day in the City of Spokane.
The gazebo has been under construction since April when it was decided that the building, which was no longer structurally sound, needed a makeover. Fiberglass, steel and concrete was used to replace rotting wood components that were compressing causing the gazebo to slant and sink. The copper dome and concrete base were left the same.
The Browne's Addition Neighborhood Council worked with the Spokane Parks Foundation and the City of Spokane Parks Department to fund and complete the project. Neighbors joined representatives from the Parks Department as well as Councilman Snyder and State Representative Andy Billings to cut the yellow ribbon in celebration.
Coeur d'Alene Park is the oldest public park in Spokane and the gazebo was originally built as a band stand over a century ago. The one that currently stands is a replica that was dedicated in 1990.
