A beautiful park just outside of downtown Spokane. Fun for kids to run and explore and parents to take a leisurely walk. Our family likes to picnic here and enjoy the beauty of the trees during different seasons.

Some of these pictures are not of the Finch.There is no huge greenhouse and the grounds are not so tailored. This is a georgous tree park with mature trees and flowering plants. The beautiful small creek has been widened and is more people friendly than years past. The Finch has had a wonderful arborist and it shows. I have been honored to have lived here for 20 years and plan to stay. Where else can you live with nature like this all around you just outside the city Please come visit in the fall,bring the camera and loved ones it will be a fantastic expierence you wont forget....

Safe with plenty of parking! As a birder, F.A. is a great place to observe both animals and birds.Bring a bird, tree or plant book and binoculars - then relax and enjoy.

Hm...this picture is not Finch Arboretum. It's Duncan Gardens at Manito Park.
Finch Arboretum is a large natural park. Lovely in any season.

It's hard to find the entrance. It' also next to the noisy I-90 so classical music on headphones helps a lot. Having taken some horticulture classes, this arboretum is a real treasure. When choosing your landscaping trees, PLEASE go see how they grow so you don't chop them up because they are outgrowing their too small planting space. I do wish they would restore/ replace many of the tags and signs for identification purposes. Even if it is general and missing some of the cultivars it would still be very helpful. Rented the small venue there for my daughter's 8th birthday party for a "camp rock" theme and loved it. Inexpensive, underutilized, can't have alcohol or outside chairs for a wedding ceremony but for the right event it is a steal.
