The South Hill of Spokane is filled with the affluent neighborhoods of the past. Lush with Manito Park, Duncan Gardens huge old Maple Trees, pines, firs. You can drive through, walk through or bike through the park. There's a nice play ground for children and a lovely pond filled with ducks.

This is one of the valley's must see gardens. It's a formal garden with well maintained displays. A fantastic walking location, and seasonal beauty year round - though winter takes a little different eye for beauty.

Driving around the South Hill neighborhood is delightful. There are so many cute houses, parks and architecture to see. There are little shops interspersed throughout. Most people in Spokane want to live here because it's so idyllic.

Spokane's South Hill area is an older part of Spokane. Therefore you will find large older homes with amazing architecture and design. Along with that you will see old well-established trees (mostly maple) that afford lots of shade and beautiful autumn colors when the leaves change color. Manito Park is the jewel of the South Hill. Be sure to stop... More

The South Hill of Spokane used to be the "nice area" to live back in the 80s and has continued to decline since then. There are some great parks still like Manito Park, or cool views from High Drive, but mostly it is just a large residential area in various stages of decline. Some nice restaurants are located in Lincoln... More

The South Hill of Spokane is a beautiful area. The highlight of the area is Manito Park which was designed by the Olmsted Brothers who also designed Central Park in New York. There are lots of old homes to look at as you drive or walk by.

Made by the same man who designed Central Park New York; Manito Park is a world class destination. Play areas for kids, duck ponds, a huge rose garden, a lilac garden, a stunning enclosed Japanese garden, an arboretum and so much more.
