We love going here when we visit. We love walking over all of the bridges and watching the water below. The trails are all nicely done and easy to walk on. Currently part of the park is under renovation so some areas are closed off. Can't wait to see all of the updates the next time we go back!

I love Riverfront Park, but 2017 the park is full of MUCH needed remodeling and repair. It is just one summer but it is still a beautiful park to walk around.

We walked around the riverfront park while visiting Spokane and found it to be a refreshing, green, well maintained. We felt safe there, and it was well within walking distance of stores and restaurants. If I go back to Spokane, I will explore the park further.

Our son and his wife recently moved to Spokane and my husband and I are here visiting for the first time. We were told we needed to go see Spokane Falls, so today our family took us to Riverfront Park. Let me tell you, it was an impressive and breath-taking experience! The Spokane River was really rushing and turbulent, and... More

This park is lovely and very well kept. There is a well maintained walking trail along the Spokane River and I felt totally safe walking by myself along it. Such a wonderful asset to downtown Spokane. Keep up the good work Spokanites!

My daughter and I would go often and spend a few hours in the while we were visiting Spokane my daughter was also proposed to the park after she came off a park ride and it was awesome! Big pond with ducks swimming and wanting fed. Also has a large carosel for kids and plenty vendors with very good food

The center area of the park is under a construction project, for yet another improvement. Even with the construction my wife and I loved the park and walked all around it. Many bridges span the river and island in the middle. Great for strolling, cycling or jogging. You should walk down the stairs alongside Spokane Falls, which is accessed next... More

We went for s short stroll and ended up wandering over 2 miles. Wandering along paths and bridges, back and forth across the roaring Spokane River. Once we saw where the lower falls dropped off we just had to find a viewing spot. Under the Monroe Street bridge is a great viewing area. A must do if in Spokane.
