Quiet park with a lot of walking paths - you can see the waterfall from every angle. Grab some lunch and eat it in the park. Very relaxing.

We walked around the park, and there were vendors, magicians, food trucks, and trinkets. We saw Canada geese and ducks in the pond. We also saw rapids in the Spokane river...and don't forget the big red wagon and the goat that eats garbage! Not to be missed!

Loved all the metal artwork scattered around the park. The grass was lush and we'll kept and the paths were fun to explore. We saw a musical carousel and a huge red wagon that the kids could play on. Located right across the street from the riverfront shopping, it was a nice way to spend an afternoon.

The riverfront park in Spokane is lovely, bordering both sides of the Spokane River, with waterfalls in between! There's an antique carousel, and lots of lovely meandering paths. In the newspaper on the day I was there was a lot of talk about spending millions to upgrade it -- thought it was pretty special to begin with!

It's a very good park to walk around while you are in town. However. The skyride is just okay. Jude see the falls. And it takes a long time idling while loading and unloading.

My wife and I stopped by Riverfront Park during a roller coaster road trip around USA and Canada and we really enjoyed our short visit there. For visitors the main attractions are the Sky Ride over the Falls ($7.50), the antique Looff carousel ($2) and the small amusement park, which contains a powered Dragon roller coaster ($4). The Sky Ride... More

Spent a lovely afternoon here; very pretty park in the center of the city. They have an old-fashioned carousel and we had a great time with our two grandchildren riding the horses. Unfortunately we went on a weekday and the gondola ride was closed so we strolled all over the park. There's a very cool huge sculpture of a Radio... More

We sent for a stoll in the park after our lunch. This is a beautiful downtown park with the river and falls giving a dramatic performance. Very safe and open. Great for families.
