Welcome to Sandpoint Idaho!
Before you get started, here is a bit of
| Whether new to the area or just visiting
you will immediately notice mountains with ski
hills, wide lush valleys, and the largest lake
in Idaho Lake Pend Oreille, dominating the view.
Built by railroad and timber over one hundred
years ago, Sandpoint has become one of the most
diverse small towns in the Pacific Northwest.
Many travelers, when crossing the long bridge on
U.S. 95, instantly decide to make this their new
home, if only temporarily. Sandpoint is less a
place and more a feeling that can only be
experienced, not explained.
Since our modest beginning the recreational
possibilities of Sandpoint have been unlimited,
and a priority in our community. The Sandpoint
Recreation department was established in 1945
and after considerable growth combined with the
City's Parks Department in 2004. The combined
Parks and Recreation Department continues to
make the exploration and execution of
Sandpoint's recreational possibilities a top
priority. The Parks and Recreation department
compliments the community's health and safety by
enhancing quality of life.
