The South Hill of Spokane is a beautiful area. The highlight of the area is Manito Park which was designed by the Olmsted Brothers who also designed Central Park in New York. There are lots of old homes to look at as you drive or walk by.

The homes... More

Made by the same man who designed Central Park New York; Manito Park is a world class destination. Play areas for kids, duck ponds, a huge rose garden, a lilac garden, a stunning enclosed Japanese garden, an arboretum and so much more.

I live on the South Hill... it's just a part of town. Some nice parks are in the area - but they are already listed as their own attractions - and I guess you can drive around and look at the mansions or whatever, but this is NOT like a historic district with lots of old shops and buildings to...

A must see when visiting Spokane or if you live here, one should visit several times a year. It is a beautiful place that is enjoyed by many. It is a unique and relaxing place to visit cared for by so many volunteers...

The South Hill is a historic part of Spokane, with great houses and wonderful gardens. The Japanese gardens are just beautiful. I love the city and definitely would return when I have the opportunity.

Changed a lot from when I grew up there in the 50's-60's The view or the US 195 valley is wonderful. Manito Park, The golf and country club and many other small parks make it a nice area... More

Yes, the South Hill has some lovely homes and mansions among the dilapidated and rotting older homes. I enjoy the tree lined streets. And, yes, Lindaman's (my favorite Spokane eatery) is located there. Manito Park is also worth a visit. And thankfully, Spokane has an actual Trader Joe's here. Problems: The traffic on 29th is dangerous, and there are very... More
