Riverfront park has always been a destination of choice for our family, but in the last several months, huge improvements have been taking place. The red wagon is fun, ice skating in winter turns to roller skating in summer, the carousel is about to open...More

The timing was excellent as the river was running at near full capacity so the River Falls were spectacular with the water sprays flying high and wetting passerby’s to their delight. We also rode the carousel which was enjoyable. If you have smaller children don’t...More

We spent time walking around the trails in this compact park. Since it was a fine Spring Saturday afternoon, and since the Park was hosting a large public event, their were plenty of people. It was a delightful experience.

Spokane's Riverfront park is wonderful, not to be missed. An easy stroll with informational signage along the way about the history of the river and Spokane. Be sure to see the falls by the Washington Power Station.
