Well worth seeing when in Spokane. In early April it is just coming to life as Spring is developing. Very relaxing and tranquil and laid out perfectly for an easy meander. The cactus house is excellent.

The premier park in a park-friendly city, Manito Park is large, with a wide variety of terrain, plants, and gardens, including a rose garden, a lovely, authentic Japanese garden, and a formal garden that rivals ones you can find in Europe. There is also a large greenhouse, tennis courts and, for families with kids, a popular duck pond and playground.... More

what a pleasant place to drive through or stop and wonder around, a definite place you can stop and smell the roses or let the kids run through gardens of color or picnic and stare at the clouds overhead while your senses immerse in fragrance and laughter. What a gem this park has been throughout the generations and will continue... More

I was here early in the season so the roses hadn't wakened from their winter slumber yet. The park was peaceful and beautiful. Well maintained grounds and walkways made it easy to stroll through the spring flowers and foliage. I hope to someday return to se the roses in full bloom.

Manito Park is a true gem, with formal gardens, Japanese Garden, perennials, woods, rhodies, roses, irises, playgrounds, sledding hills. Designed by the Olmsted Brothers, who designed the other parks mentioned. It is a joy and a treasure.

This place was pretty and made me wish I had such luck with not just roses, but many other flowering plants. The trees were healthy looking as well and there's plenty of green grass around to sit under a tree on. ;)

Spokane boasts of Manito Park for good reason. It is a beautiful park which is very colorful in Spring and Summer. Summer is my favorite time to visit since most of the flowers are in full bloom. There are a few benches available for picnics. The pond is murky and there are a lot of ducks in this area. It's... More

Bonito Park is an oasis of quiet where you can stroll among various gardens. My favorite is the Japanese Garden with the ponds, koi and ducks. The gardens are well maintained and clean. Was there in September when the blooming season was over (I would have liked to be there when the lilac were in bloom!) but it was nevertheless... More

Always a place to stop when in bloom. Even if they are not stop and walk around. Took my wife here since she always wanted to go and we had a good time. Now that we live here we will probably be going here a couple times a year and showing our baby girl this place as well.

Fabulous south hill park with duck ponds, and various formal and informal gardens. Beautiful in early summer. Summer walks in the park, toys for the kids, winter sledding, and possible ice skating on the duck pond. Great history; a very old park, nice conservatory built in a late 19th century style, and a Japanese garden dedicated to Spokane's sister city... More
