    Favorite Park in Spokane
    absolute gem that offers a serene escape from the bustling city life. From the moment you step foot into this enchanting park, you'll find yourself immersed in a world of natural beauty and tranquility. One of the park's greatest highlights is its breathtaking botanical gardens

    Just Wow
    Beautiful gardens and surrounding parks including an exclusive rose garden and a Japanese garden. All are exquisitely groomed and in July they are in full bloom. Very peaceful place to pass a morning or afternoon.

    Gardens for Everyone's Taste
    No matter what form of park/garden space you like, you will find it here. Formal European Gardens, a Rose Garden, a serene Japanese Garden, a Tropical Conservatory, Perennial Gardens, etc. etc. And it is all tucked in a quiet neighborhood on the South side of the city. Spend some time watching the ducks on the pond, or strolling the hilly areas. Our favorite stop in Spokane.

Manito Park is heritage amusement floral museum. The bright colors with scalloped edging of the green allow for beautiful weddings that are masterminded publicly with seats for 5. Call ahead to schedule your wedding. It is chep less than 400.00 and sadly anyone in all of Spokane is invited. It being a "public park" You cannot request people to walk away. This is a 5 star park. In my opinion if you choose a wedding here, than you should want the world to see it. You have entered a beautiful floral landscape that all love.

Probably the best reward you can give yourself while in Spokane. Spring planting has brought forth acres of georgeous flowers. Peonies, Iris, roses, you name it all blooming now. We saw a live wedding going on while we were there.

Manito Park is probably Spokane's greatest treasure. Its well-groomed and maintained (even in this COVID era) gardens are a colorful and fragrant escape from the rest of the world. Of particular note are the dahlias, rose garden, and reflecting pond. An ice cream kiosk makes for a nice break from all the hiking and there are benches and tables everywhere to enjoy a picnic or just people watch.

One could spend all day hiking around the various features but if your time is limited the upper reaches of the park where the rose garden and fountains abound are probably must sees.

My friend & I enjoyed the gardens & the large pond. The water was dirty & there were patches of large bird poop on the sidewalk. But there were birds tweeting in the trees & baby ducks floating by. It was great to be out in nature. Some of the areas were not open. But there was plenty of areas to walk out and enjoy flowers, trees & greenery.

This park was so beautiful that we had to go again! Our first visit was in January, covered in snow and ice and it was still beautiful. We visited again in May and wow, it was breathtaking! We had a group with a broad age span and everyone loved our time there. It was great to visit all of the different garden and little side paths that in the park. I also loved that they did have a little coffee stand-it made the park even better. This park is free and an amazing way to spend a day in Spokane.

Really, if you like beautiful 100 year old homes with fabulously landscaped yards, the neighborhood is almost better than the park. We spent an hour just driving up and down the streets looking at the fantastic homes. Manito Park was just as lovely though. A lush, colorful setting, and really a large place. Parking seemed a tad restrictive though, and I would hate to be those across the street in the busy summer months. Very nicely kept up, various gardens such as a perennial garden, rose garden, iris garden, fuchsia garden, as well as a couple of duck ponds (currently one is being dredged). Also the Japanese garden is currently closed (our main reason for going) due to COVID. Will be back for sure!

Our family has enjoyed Manito Park for the past 12 years. The ducks are fun to watch at the duck pond. The gardens provide cool & aesthetically pleasing walking treats. Do not miss the Rose Garden! Even our 6 year old Granddaughter loved it!! The Japanese Garden is my most favorite spot. If you love dog watching, the duck pond is a pretty great spot. The entertainment at the bistro has been truly enjoyable in years past, as well.

We were told this is a must see attraction and they were right. Flowers abound throughout the park. Roses are stunning. Unfortunately the Japanese Gardens were closed during our visit and heard they were really something to see as well. There’s also a cute shaded place under trees called The Park Bench where you can get ice cream!

I lived in Spokane in the early 90's. It is such a lovely city. Manito Park was one of my favorite places to visit while living there and I go back each time I visit Spokane. The gardens are diverse and beautiful all year long. I miss the wisteria and the fragrant lilacs. Be sure to take your camera and plan to be there for a few hours.
