Crown Jewel of Spokane

This is a leftover from the 1974 World's Fair and is a phnomenal day trip. All within walking distance. Don't miss the Carosel from 1909, or the clock tower.

This is for ice skating lessons at the ice palace. Terrible. Why on earth do you use permanent marker on the ice when it's lessons for small children? Of course they fall and their clothes were all stained in permanent marker. When I called and addressed this with "Cheryl", she caledl back and left a message. She never apologized, only... More

I had some time to kill before flying out of Spokane after a ski trip. I'd stayed downtown and had picked up a coffee and a pastry. I wandered around the park and got a good view of the river and the falls. It was pretty quiet for a Friday morning, but it was the winter. There seemed to be... More

This is quite a pleasant, peaceful park. There are different paths that one can take and the views of the river are nice.

This park is a peaceful remnant of the Worlds Fair from the 70's and has been a central character of our city's vibe. Fabulous falls and lovely walks for the whole family.

Although most would avoid a stroll in a snow storm, I've always taken the road less traveled. Riverfront Park is a rare jewel right in the middle of Spokane. Any time of year you can collect your thoughts, escape the busy city, and enjoy the beauty of this park.

When I visited Spokane I stopped at the Riverfront Park, it was very peaceful and it was nice to walk around after being in the car for so long. It was very clean and well maintained and it's a good place for photo opportunities!

This has to be, hands down, the best carousel in the country. Possibly the world. Don't go to Spokane without experiencing it!

We try to go every year to this event! It's always fun and the food is great! The crowds can be excessive at times, but well worth the trouble.
