Free public park with lovely paths. Enjoyable year around but best in the fall. Grab some hot chocolate and walk on the crunchy leaves enjoying the crisp air.

I'm new to Spokane, and this is one of the first places I visited (end June). First, as others have mentioned, the photo is not of the arboretum. The grounds are large, and I probably spent 2.5 hours walking at my leisure and taking photos....More

We love to picnic here! Even in the winter, a soup picnic and cross country skiing is the best. Fall is gorgeous! Spring and Summer something is always blooming
