Very few cities have a river with really cool water falls running through them - Spokane does, go see it.

It was beautiful. We went early, it was a little difficult to find, but did ok in the long run. My children enjoyed the stop before our long drive and I enjoyed the beauty and cleanliness.

In the heart of downtown with a nice shaded trails that cross beautiful waterfalls, you will find Riverfront Park a nice place for a relaxing stroll. A few amusement attractions are here as well including a "Merry Go-Round" and a seasonally opened "Cable Car" that will give you great views of the "Spokane Falls" for less than $10.

We are traveling on a two month trip from California and decided tom spend a few days in Spokane and check it out! One of the places we first found was Riverfront Park. It is a really nice old school central city park. No cost to visit. Parking isn't too bad. The park is fairly large and on both sides... More

I've always loved Riverfront Park. I also worked at Expo '74 in the Ford Pavilion. Growing up in Spokane, I had the privilege of going to Nat Park and riding the carousel, which is now housed in what was the Bavarian restaurant at Expo '74. I loved it at Nat and love seeing the carousel in Riverfront Park.

I did not expect to have fun like I did back when I visited this park. Your children will find plenty of simple but fun activities to do or enjoy some time on the grass. Loved walking all around and checking things out.
