This is a must do activity! The park is beautiful and follows the river all the way around the town. Take a leisurely stroll & stop at one of the many restaurants or viewing places for photos opportunities

The sights, scenery & smells were more like a spring day than a winter walk. The falls were so beautiful. The sidewalks were closed off in some areas but the extra walk felt so good, it didn’t matter to me. The pathways are beautiful.

Take time to visit this park because you can safely and easily stroll along the walkways, view the rushing river, and enjoy people watching.

Remodeling is currently being done in the park. It will be great when it is done later this spring. The carousel will have a larger place. The ice ribbon is fantastic. More and more people are using the park.

Spokane Riverfront Park is a great spot to view the waterfall. The Inspirational Marker provides another great view.

Riverfront Park opened their new ice skating rink at the end of 2017. If you get tired of the standard oval rink this is a nice change. In addition to winds and turns there are slight inclines and declines to add to the fun. The...More
