McCall Public Waterfront Improvement Project

"Brown Park contractor construction is going well, and the weather has been in our favor the majority of the park will be 90% complete by the end of the month" said Kurt Wolf, Parks and Recreation Director. Pathway surfacing will begin and construction will continue into November along E. Lake street and the shoreline into the park, weather permitting. The shoreline mitigation and stabilization is also nearing completion and playground installation is slated for late October. It is still unknown whether the park will be opened to the public this fall and we will update the public when known. Some landscaping and final touches will be made in the spring of 2022. For further information or questions please call 208-634-3006, McCall Parks and Recreation.

Expect Heavy Traffic entering and exiting the park.

  • Project No. 2—Brown Park Improvements & Playground located on the former McCall Mill site, which contains some unidentified fill material. In order to limit the disruption to this material, limited re-grading work is proposed. The major enhancements include the relocation of the playground with the installation of new equipment, realignment of the pathway and increasing the walk-able surfaces, installation of more aesthetic materials and landscape features, and possibly incorporating public art. 

Project Location and Limits:

The Project will be located North of Legacy Park from City boat ramp and run the shoreline along E. Lake St. extending through Brown Park.

Project Funding:

This project is funded by The McCall Redevelopment Agency (MRA) & Grants.

Primary Construction Improvements: 


Public Outreach:

  • Media, Community HOA and neighbors, McCall-Donnelly School District students

Construction Impacts:

  • Business and private residence access along E. Lake st. will remain open throughout construction.
  • Flaggers and temporary signals are anticipated to control construction traffic when needed
  • Construction hours will be 7am- 7pm Monday- Friday and optional on weekends.

Anticipated Project Design Schedule:

Project #1 Fall of 2020 (September- November)

Project #2 Summer of 2021 (June- October)

The completion of Project #3 and Project #4 depends highly on available funding. Completing Project #4 before Project #3 poses some difficulties, as temporary anchorage of docks and access ways will be required before the proposed pathway is built. However, these can be worked out and don’t restrict that as an alternative for implementation. Project #3 is the most expensive project, so finding funding for completion will most likely control the timeline for completion. Ideally, these projects would be completed simultaneously but constructing the
shoreline improvements of Project #4 prior to implementing Project #3 is likely more feasible.
