My first pig out at the park and it was fun. So many different types of food to try. Any type you could think of from deep fried lasagna to buttery corn on the cob. Great music and a fun variety of people. Just sitting and watching all the different cultures, very enjoyable.

A lot of walking to see it all. Beautiful. Went to a powwow and then later The Pig Out (or something like that). Visited the Big Red Wagon and carousel. Very nice park!

Love Riverfront Park. Gondola ride over the Falls is awesome, but was sorry they moved the Science Center. IMAX theatre is great, but we didn't like the selection so didn't go. Pig Out at the Park was on. Great music, but way too many un-healthy food booths. Some of us don't like all our food deep-fried!

This island park was created in the 70"s for the worlds fair. The Spokane falls surround. Lots of bridges, paths to stroll and family entertainment. It is steps away from the convention center.

Lots of pathways, for walking or jogging, lovely plants, flowers and trees just everywhere. The river is lovely, the falls are unique and beautiful. Everything appears well maintained. There are some wonderful metal sculptures down near the falls. Great water fountain for running through on a hot day. We did not have to concern ourselves with parking options as we... More

Take the time to walk through the Falls and take in the park. It's always a pleasure and there are lots of fun things for kids to see. Look close when you're on the bridges over the river... are those fish down there hiding in the depths? What fun!

Our family (kids 10 and 8) took our bikes and biked the pathways of the park. They are a little confusing but we still enjoyed our time. After asking numerous people we finally found our way to the newly opened portion of the Centennial trail that takes you out for a great look at the lower falls. This was the... More
