Kids and adults alike can ride the carousel, feed the ducks, and have a picnic. There is an Imax theater and a gondola ride, a garbage eating goat, and beautiful views. Make a stop here someday and slide down the red wagon!

Whether you're there to feed the birds, ride the carousel, the gondola or the other rides, take in an Imax movie, attend an event or simply take a stroll, have a picnic or BBQ, this park is gorgeous! Don't forget to visit the garbage goat, especially if you have wee ones. I recommend taking the train tour which will show... More

I love waterfalls. This is my favorite downtown waterfall in the northwest, and the park is beautiful. The walking area is well laid out to allow for photography and exercise.

Love this part of Downtown. Easy walking to shops and places to eat. The falls are always so beautiful no matter what time of the year you visit. Love all the trails and walking paths. If the Gondolas are working you get the best view of everything! Just beautiful!!

This is a great park to visit in downtown. Often take my granddaughter there in the summer so she can enjoy the carousel, train and carnival rides. Great for walking, jogging, or just relax with a river view. There are a number of activities that happen in the park throughout the year. Great attraction for downtown Spokane.

Riverfront Park is one of Spokanes greatest assets. Right in the heart of the city, it is a great escape from the tall buildings and hustle/bustle of the vibrant downtown. So many paths, walkways, and bridges crisscrossing the Spokane River. Whether on a beautiful summer day, or wonderul snow day (in this event ensure hearty footwear), it is a place... More

The sound of rushing water as it hits the rocks, winding paths with much to see, and read about the area at sunset made you forget you where in the heart of downtown Spokane. It was our first time view the falls and this park, Our only wish was we had allotted more time to visit and during the week... More

Riverfront Park is a beautiful destination right in the heart of Spokane's downtown. My favorite part is the falls! The gondola ride over the river and down into the ravine is a perfect way to spend time with that special someone. I always hit the IMAX theater too, whenever there's a new release that must be seen in larger than... More
