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

This was a great place to go and explore. The price to play in the "theme" park was only $20 and the kids could ride all of the rides, see an IMAX, take the train and the sky gondola over the falls. The Sky ride was so beautiful (a little hot) but beautiful. There is lots of grass to play... More

A beautiful green space in the heart of Spokane spanning both sides of the river. A wonderful old fashioned carrousel. A giant red wagon slide! A small amusement park with a few rides. My husband & I love walking around this park while in Spokane.

During our vacation to Spokane we took a walk along the park almost daily. We loved the fact that it went along the river and was relatively quiet. It is part of the Centennial train that stretches for miles, so we were able to walk for hours or have a brief stroll. The park is very family oriented with a... More

Riverfront Park is a real gem in the heart of Spokane. Don't just pass by the fountain at the main entrance; it's actually a very cool sculpture, as well as fun for kids to play in. Be sure to check out the beautiful falls, of which there are many views. The walks to views of the falls are half the... More
