“Incredibly Beautiful Setting”
Reviewed May 9, 2014 via mobile

Hard to believe a prettier setting in a downtown location. The park surrounds two sets of waterfalls that are spectacular. The power of the churning water is mesmerizing. The park features a wide variety of activities for all ages- including a 105 year old carousel. The park was spotless and the amenities make the day a real treat. Wish we could come here more often.

“Beautiful park”
Reviewed May 8, 2014

Beautiful park in the heart of downtown. There's lots to do here for the entire family. The park is along the Centennial Trail, which is a paved trail that runs all the way to Coeur d’Alene (it's technically two trails, but they run together). The World's Fair was held here in 1974, so a lot of the attractions still exist. There's a small midway, a skyride, an indoor carousel, a big wagon/play area, as well as numerous statues. There are also bridges that give you great views of the falls downtown.

“Beautiful place ”
Reviewed May 3, 2014 via mobile

Lots to see with lots of walking, running, or bikes on marked paths. The town is all around so you can grab a beer or some food at any time.

“Gorgeous park in the heart of town”
Reviewed April 27, 2014

Riverfront park is especially beautiful at this time of year. The falls are at their height and the trees are all in bud. This is a family friendly park with walking and bike trails, picnic grounds, and beautiful views and sounds of the falls all around. It weaves through through the heart of downtown
