I'm from So Cal and we don't have dedicated outdoor spaces like this at home. It was a beautiful morning. I didn't realize how big the park is and would have been better if I packed a picnic lunch. My five year old daughter liked the "hiking" in the wild section of the park and climbed rocks. She was bored... More

Any traveler to Spokane must add Manito Park and Duncan Gardens to their must see list. This has always been one of my favorite parts of our fair city. The Duncan Gardens are at the top of the hill and the Japanese Gardens are nearby. Sometimes people do not realize that there is more to the park then the lower... More

This is a 113 year old park designed by the Olsen brothers. The park has beautiful flower gardens, and plenty of room for youngsters play and paths for walks.

Even with all the wonderful places Spokane has to offer (shhh, don't tell anyone else) Manito Park is the best place to go for pictures, picnics, or simply to enjoy the gorgeous scenery. Between the flower gardens and Japanese gardens there are so many different settings this place has to offer. Best yet, the time of year doesn't matter. Of... More

Staff is very glad to hear how much you enjoy the park. Please remember that Parks policy prohibits portrait photography in the Japanese Garden and Gaiser Conservatory. These are tranquil places where people should not have to worry if they are in someone's picture, be distracted by people arranging for pictures, or have to wait for people blocking the paths....

If your in Spokane Manito is a must visit any time of year. The flower gardens are wonderful in the spring and summer. Lots of ducks and the occasional swan in the pond. The Japanese garden on the west side is also a wonderful place to see. The hills are a popular sledding spot in the winter and sometimes ice... More

Once again, brought out-of-towners here in Spring with lots in bloom but before the annuals planted. There's something for everyone: wild untamed areas, backyard-style foods, a conservatory and planned garden areas (iris, rose, lilac etc). And also a beautifully maintained Japanese garden.

So many types of plants and flowers all through this park. So restful and relaxing. Catch this in the spring or summer when flowers are blooming!

We walked around Manito park when we had time to kill. The tulips were in bloom, but the roses still have a while before they come out. If you have kids, this is a great place to bring them! Lots to do, undercover picnic areas, playground and wide open grass for throwing a frisbee or playing catch.
