This is a fun park. Many cool things to see at this former site of a world expo. And it's on the Spokane River with its falls, & right next to downtown.

They light up the park and provide horse drawn wagon rides around the walkways during the holidays. Great fun for the family.

Great place to get out and walk! Right downtown, close to shopping and restaurants. Concerts and Pig Out at the Park in the summer. Christmas lights and 1st Night Spokane in the winter!

We walked in the snow to the falls. There is so much to do every season at Riverfront park, ice skating rides, arcade, gondolas to view the falls.

Kids and adults alike can ride the carousel, feed the ducks, and have a picnic. There is an Imax theater and a gondola ride, a garbage eating goat, and beautiful views. Make a stop here someday and slide down the red wagon!
