The park itself is beautiful, but it is under construction and has been for awhile. I do love the atmosphere and the proximity to Downtown Spokane. It’s a breath of fresh air right in the middle of a city. I’d check to see what the...More

This park is so much fun! You can ride an old fashioned carousel, feed a garbage eating goat, enjoy historical info and sculptures, and even sit down and play a funky old piano!

Wonderful view of the river. A beautiful entertainment venue, the crown jewel is the merry go round. Walking paths, skating arena, and the centennial trail

We went down the slide at the Radio Flyer red wagon, rode the carousel, enjoyed walking and then road the gondola over the falls. The carousel and gondola cost money but was worth it. Just a run and relaxing afternoon. Everyone was very friendly.

It’s always a nice walk to the waterfall/waterfront. Pretty view but also cool to see the powerful waterfall. There is a little tram thing you can ride over the water. Seems to be open pretty late. The whole area has been improved from when I...More

Nice river front park with views of downtown and a couple of small waterfalls. The park is small enough to explore in an hour or two but big enough to feel some separation from the city.

I would suggest the convention center lot north of the park. On street parking is harder to find than usual. There is extensive remodeling of the park near the mall parking garage. This involves the west side of the park... More
