  • We were pleasantly surprised that there was little traffic in downtown Spokane which made a walk to this park from our downtown hotel very pleasant. Although there was construction going on, we enjoye...  more »
  • Pretty boring. Some sights but nothing I would go out of my way to see. Everything is closed and under construction.  more »
  • Great green space downtown to walk around for a while. Neat sculpture walk can keep you busy for a while spotting all the sights.  more »

  • When we arrived the park was under construction. Hence the 4 stars. But, what I got to experience was the powerful Spokane Water Falls. Wow having a waterfall in the middle of the city, is luck. The city build around it and allowed for this waterfall be a highlight. My daughter had fun exploring along side the waterfall. This is a good pit stop for kids and adults from a road trip. The art that incorporated into the sidewalk was beautiful. It was iron statues of runners in a race. One can imagine running among them. The mall was quite impressive as well. I will love to return to Spokane Washington for another visit.
  • Always a lovely green space. Play areas for the children, the river for senic views and feeding geese. Fair warning: expect disruption and construction all through the summer of 17 (at least). I spoke to the chief archeologist of the project at a conference in May 17 though, and the updates sound wonderful - more stages for music, more power outlets for the many festivals... Spokane is making a great effort with this central park!
  • The plans for the park are pretty neat. The Sky Gondola, a new ice rink, a carousel, cafe, and a few other things are currently being built. The park seems to be just a nice city park with amusement rides (closed for the season?). Main attraction is the waterfront and access to it. The proposed plans for the park will make it super cool for people of all ages. Until then, it's a nice walk when wandering around.
  • It's absolutely gorgeous, just breathtaking! Fun for everyone. Easy access. Riverfront Park IS the best park in town. It's so exciting to see the construction going on. Cannot wait for the Big Reveal! Thank you Spokane!
  • Beautiful park in downtown Spokane. Plenty of trails for walking or biking, a large variety of sculptures, historic information about the falls, people and industry along the river. Fun activities for children and construction continuing on many more attractions in the near future.
