I make a point to take any visitors to Riverfront Park ... It should be a stop for anyone wanting to get a feel for the city. The falls are beautiful, especially in the spring, when snowmelt makes them really grand. The gondolas ride is a great way to get up close. I think my favorite attraction is the garbage... More

This is the perfect place for a late night stroll. We were lucky to get a hotel right on the river and really enjoyed all the many sculptures and art along the walkways. Wish I had more time but we only were in Spokane for the 1 night.

I went there with my sister last summer and had a great time. So many things going on. Food, people, and the beautiful Spokane Falls. We went on the Sky ride and it was a beautiful way to see the whole park. The only bad thing is that if it is hot out it is even hotter in the ride.... More

Large, beautiful park on the River, easy to get to, near downtown attractions. Can ride the aerial ride over the falls for a fee or ride the carousel.

Best park in the middle of downtown Spokane. The park was the site of the 1974 Worlds Fair, the land was purchased from the Railroad that ran through Spokane , from every direction. By the 1970's it had become a sort of "skid row" and eye sore. The Worlds Fair changed everything, beautiful rolling lawns , the Spokane River runs... More

This is such a great relaxing place. Lots to do several restaurants close by this large park that is always well maintained. We have visited twice and look forward to our next trip..If you are in the are and have some time to spend this would be a good place to spend it.
