The Navy confirmed Wednesday that a nearby hangar referred to as Building 2 also has radioactive contamination confined to rooms where sailors applied the paint aircraft gauges so they would glow in the dark.
The park was part of the former Naval Air Station Sandpoint which operated from the early 1920s until it was decommissioned in 1970.
