Public Art Cherry Hill Park

"Fire Helmet"
Artist: Fred Ogram
Location: Cherry Hill 9-11 Park

In April 2005 the Coeur d'Alene Arts Commission was approached by the City of Coeur d'Alene Parks and Fire Departments for assistance in creating a very unique playground and 9-11 Memorial. One of the unique features of the park is a fireman's helmet. The helmet was designed to be a piece of the playground but it is also a "landmark" for the entire park. It is approximately 10 feet in height with stairs to a slide and observation deck around the brim of the helmet. The Coeur d'Alene Arts Commission contributed $10,000 towards the funding of the project.
