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 over 65 acres! We haven't been...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-there weren't any paved paths so that may be a...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.

Stopped off here and within the first 3 minutes, a moose came running past me! I saw two more during my visit - awesome! Beautiful place to wander around.

Beautifully kept arboretum, close to town, but peaceful. Many of the trees are named and older with a nice variety. Plenty of grass to stroll and a building with info.

I love this arboretum. It is close to the freeway. You hear traffic noise, but it is lovely nonetheless. I wondered if this would be a good visit, given that it is fall. But, with the warm November temperatures, the autumn leaves were spectacular Veterans'...More

This place is very pretty . A lot of walking, not much parking. Good place for a picnic and family photos! Wide open spaces great for kids to run (no play equipment)

Sometimes I dislike the fact no dogs are allowed, but that makes it more peaceful and I don't have to watch where I step (or lay down and roll in the grass!). A great place to see a variety of trees and enjoy lunch.
