Manito Park, Spokane

4.8
Designed by the famous Olmstead Brothers, Manito Park features beautifully manicured lawns, many gardens, and a greenhouse conservatory, all set on 36 hectares (90 acres). The name means Spirit of Nature in the Algonquian language, and that's what you'll find here, with flowers, topiaries, and tall trees lining well-kept paths designed for walking and cycling. The park offers facilities for baseball, sledding, tennis, bird watching, and even Frisbee golf. Kids will be entertained in the two playgrounds and can enjoy feeding the ducks and geese in the duck pond. Until 1932, the park was a zoo, but it closed due to lack of funding during the Depression. You can still see remnants of the old zoo, such as the rock with an iron bar stuck in it, once part of the cage for bears.

  • Beautiful Park! Gorgeous colors and plants in the spring and summer. My wife and I had our wedding here in early fall back in 2015 and it was superb! The park has a diverse amount of areas to visit and even do light shows in the winter!
  • Love this park. Huge park with a little something for everyone. Love all the gardens, walking trails and activities going on. Lots of grassy areas, and trees. Great place for families or solitude. Be sure to visit the English garden and the rose garden. Such a beautiful park.
  • March is defiantly not the best time of year to visit to see the real beauty here. However it is still a great place to visit. Many paths to walk and rocks to climb.
  • Easily the most beautiful city park I've been to. It's a great place for a romantic stroll where you can just chat and look at the beautiful trees and flowers. They have rosebushes, and a Japanese garden that are gorgeous in the summer, I'm excited to see this place in spring.
  • Beautiful park, ample trails and paths, different gardens and playgrounds. This is my all time favorite place. I love sitting in the rose garden or ambling in the English garden. During the Summers on Saturdays theirs a plant sale. It's perfect!
