Within walking distance to the historical Davenport hotels. The powerhouses on Spokane Falls are fascinating to see. During Spring 2018, there's a lot of new construction/improvements being made in this park.

It was a nice place to walk downtown and fun things to do for kids (big slide, etc). It is massively under construction right now, so that takes away from it, but I would still recommend going there to see the waterfall and just walk...More

Under construction, but still nice place to take a walk. Close to activities and restaurants and hotels. The clock tower is a good landmark.

The wagon slide was super cool! Lots of photo ops. I imagine it being a great place for picnics in the summer

I was there last summer but apparently never finished writing a review. The park is OK, nothing to write home about.

I’m sure there is a lot to do during season but not much is happening during rainy season. Cool area to walk and jog plus take pictures near the falls.

Had lunch at great Irish restaurant across the street from park. Unfortunately, I can't remember the name. Loved the huge red wagon and the waterfront area. Very clean park too - lots of birds and wildlife.

This park need a overload. Glad to see they are putting the money into it. Spokane is plagued with with a large homeless population so beware at dusk and dark.

I would suggest the convention center lot north of the park. On street parking is harder to find than usual. There is extensive remodeling of the park near the mall parking garage. This involves the west side of the park... More
