  • This is a hidden Gem in Spokane's Downtown area. It is off the old Sunset Highway. Fall is the best time for the colors of this park! I learned there are over 2000 indigenous trees and the park is ove...  more »
  • My husband and I were vacationing in Spokane and stopped by. The fall colors were just starting -what a wonderful and free activity! I was having trouble walking around the arboretum due to a bad knee...  more »
  • Of course, there are trees, it's an arboretum! And they have some of the greatest trees in Spokane. If you don't find it in the FA it probably won't grow in our area.  more »

  • This is a wonderful little getaway if you love the outdoors but can't get out of town. The treads are beautiful and the whole garden can be explored in just a couple of hours. Multiple paths make it possible to come back and have a different experience. I saw many birds, squirrels, and even a doe all in one visit. There are only two detractors that potential visitors should know about. First, the park is nestled in between highway 90 and a busy main road (Sunset) so, there is a fair amount of traffic noise anywhere in the park. The second and greatest flaw with this park is that the bus does not stop there and it is a perilous walk along Sunset on foot. I took a cab home to avoid the walk. Overall, excellent and worth a visit especially if you have transportation.
  • This is a great park, BUT.... it is wedged between I-90 and a busy road... so there is a lot of road noise. Nothing kills the effect of being in nature like the sound of trucks roaring up the hill to the airport. Again, the park is beautiful and contains an impressive variety of vegetation. I'd recommend a visit. Some parts of the park are much quieter than others.
  • Love this place! So much space which makes it very nice on weekends to find your own spot to relax. Very clean and beautiful place! Highly recommend if you’re looking for something relaxing to do on the weekend or if visiting Spokane!
  • Great place to visit in the fall. Many different types of trees to see. The colors are great
  • Beautiful place for a walk, spacious and filled with trees. Go either in spring or fall those are the best times.
