This park is awesome! It has so many walking trails, large ponds with lots of ducks and geese to feed. The squirrels like attention too! You can read, tan, work, or whatever comes to mind to do out there. You can just sit and meditate if you like. I really enjoy it when I visit there.

“Remnants of time gone by.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 3, 2014

Our guests are always surprised by the amazing sculptures of runners, and tickled like little children to see an actual working merry-go-round. We recently drove around the park with my father and mother-in-law. Riverfront Park, sparked many memories of Nat Park for them...especially the merry-go-round. Ride the gondolas early in the year when the water is rushing, and it isn't too hot...it's a favorite for us. We always linger longer than we thought we would, and leave with a sense of pride.

“Big Red Wagon”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 31, 2014

Fun park with a giant red wagon. Sculptures of runners on the sidewalk. There is a tram that takes you over the water fall. All of this is within a few blocks of the mall in downtown Spokane.

“Family, friends, fun”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 28, 2014

Great views especially the falls in the spring and early summer. The children love the water features as well as walking on the bridges and the merry go round. It is close to shopping and great eating places as well.

Though I marked May of 2014, I have visited frequently and though the park is free, there are some fun activities that cost including the carousel. Also I have enjoyed a 15 minute walk on a bridge over the falls as well as a 3 hour outing. I have gone alone and with friends and family.
