My favorite urban experience used to be Seattle; it had a certain intimacy for a big city. I found that Spokane is so much better. I lived in Spokane and have become enchanted with the the Spokane Downtown Riverfront Experience. There are a million things to do and places to eat and hotels to stay in located right around some...

I love this place but currently there is construction. Kids (0-gray) can watch duck and geese in the river, play on a gigantic red wagon, run under an artistic fountain (summer only) ice skate or ride rides depending on season, catch a gondola over the river, catch a horse drawn cart, or an Imax adventure movie. And just steps away... More

Great place to head out for a family outing. Go for a walk - toss around a Frisbee - grab some food. Great place!

Lots of good walkways along the river and very scenic. Closer to Christmas there is also a fun light display to see. We have been here in the summer too and always had a good time.

We are in Spokane so often that it is easy to take Riverfront Park for granted. However, we began to make a walk through the park a regular event, especailly at Christmas. The main reason for this review is to encourge anyone from out of town to take the time to stop, get out, strectch your legs and enjoy this... More

I have visited this park many times since the site hosted the worlds fair. It is an great park to walk and view Spokane Falls, or ride the gondola over the Falls. There is a wonderful old carousel to ride as well. Well worth the visit!

This park is beautiful and rests along the Spokane Falls. It's in the center of downtown and is beautiful. I love walking through here and riding my bike. There are many attractions to see at this park including an I max theater, ice rink, gondola, and merry go round! Good fun!

My son and I visited on a college trip and the park is easy to find, easy to navigate, and easy to find parking. The series of falls are fun to see and connected to parks and activities and restaurants and shops.

It is a nice stroll for a weekend morning before brunch, however, their are no real cafe's lining the park that we saw where we could relax and enjoy the river. There was alot of construction going on in the area, but I will keep in mind it is November and would rerate it in the summer. Might have a... More
