Easy walking trails to both the north and south shores of the river. Monitored by police during the day and evening, so extremely safe. Great carousel and park activities for children and families.

Met our son at Riverfront Park and spent a few hours hiking around and I know we didn't see it all. The views of Spokane Falls from the various footbridges were truly awesome. Highly recommend checking out the over sized Radio Flyer wagon on the front side of the clock tower and regress to your childhood and climb up inside... More

Take time to visit this park, especially if you enjoy any style of walking, from a leisurely pace to high powered. There are bridges to cross over the picturesque Spokane River. Many different paths for variation. Enjoy!

Imax theater, gondola, amusement park, playgrounds, trees, walking and biking paths, many bridges over the whitewater. It is a very very nice space and you don't even feel like you are downtown.

This area is great for walking, sitting and watching and just enjoying the outdoors. Has access to nice eating areas also. Have to pay attention to the wheeled pedestrians.

Its a beautiful park. Fun things to see while you are there. Usually when we are there, we are staying at the Riverfront Hotel on our way to Silverwood.

What a great place to walk and enjoy the river and falls. We crossed over the river on several pedestrian bridges. People were playing frisbee, taking photos of the river and falls, and enjoying outdoor time. If you are there on a Sunday, street parking is plentiful and free!

I was in Spokane last week for the first time, and I guess we came at the perfect time because not only was the weather ideal (high 60s-low 70s, not a cloud in the sky), but there was an Earth Day Festival going on in the park. From a city planning perspective, this park is amazing and I can't believe... More

We look forward to coming to the park every year when we visit Spokane for work. It is free, beautiful and worth spending time here!
