We visited Riverfront Park on a hot morning in June. They were setting up for the Hoop Shoot Event so there was a lot of activity and people setting up for the event but it didn't diminish the impact of this beautiful park. We took the Skyride to see views of the river and that was great. It cost $6.50... More

There is so much to look at and admire both along the walk and then going to the park across the foot bridge. It's a wonderful way to get a walk in.

Riverfront Park is fairly large with plenty of open lawn space for picnics and family activities. The bridges, ponds, and clock tower are all beautifully maintained and it is surrounded by the heart of downtown Spokane: IBC Performing Arts Theater, Riverfront Mall, hotels, and lots of local shops. There are also seasonal activities such as the ice rink during the... More

Want to take a leisurely stroll through a park, feed the ducks, or sit by the water? It's all here at Riverfront Park, and lots more. You're surrounded... More

Love spending time in the park. The falls are awesome and the gondola ride is great for the kids. A nice little slice of history with some of the Expo sites still in use.

Riverfront park is so very beautiful. It has the the falls to view up close that you even feel the mist on your face. You can even take a tram ride over the falls for a sweet view. At Riverfront park, you can take a nice stroll though the park, catch a Imax film or even let the kids play... More

There are some amazing city parks West of the Mississippi, and Riverfront Park is in the top tier. It's very well laid out, and surprisingly larger than you think. Attractions are aplenty, from the historic Looff Carousel to the Gondola ride over the falls. And all with a short walk from some of the best dining and drinking Spokane has... More

Beautiful park with paved walkways. The trails allow you ample room to feel comfortable regardless of your mode of transportation. During hoop fest the pathways are still accessible; however, everything is lined with booths of various vendors. It is a nice place to relax in the city.
