a short drive from downtown but well worth the time. The park has adequate parking and it is an easy walk down to the river where you cross a suspension bridge with an exciting view of the river. A great view!

The swinging bridge is awesome!!! My whole family really enjoyed it. Perfect place for a picnic and medium strength walking (up and down a steepish hill to the bridge). My 60 and 63 in laws were able to do the walk holding the 4 year olds hand. They did say it was a work out.

We have lived near Riverside Park for the past 10 years. We have enjoyed the views, trails, and scenery innumerable times. There are so many different areas to explore with different features at each. The best part for us have been the trails which are accessible in any season.

We came to this park to do a few bike rides along the trails on the west side of the Spokane River. We rode from the Wilbur trailhead south past the Bowl and Pitcher area. There is a nice variety of smooth wide paved and unpaved paths, plus a few winding low-angle single-tracks. There are some steeper trails, but they... More

We picnicked for lunch at the Bowl and Pitcher area. It can be crowded but not impossible to find parking on a warm sunny day. Its great to get a picnic table by the roaring river. We took a short walk since we were with grandparents just over the bridge and back.

Wonderful place to hike, jog, picnic, bbq or camp. I personally don't think this place is an appropriate for playing in the water

If you long for flowing rivers, huge rock formations and trees, this is the place. The swinging bridge and bowl and pitcher are a must see.

GREAT for the whole family. Watch for Mnt bikers don't walk or hike taking up the whole trail. There is a 25 mile loop for those looking for a good hike or run. There are spur trails if you decide to bit off more than you thought .

This park is huge with a river running through it, roads and trails around it and so close to town. The Centennial Trail was expanded to Nine Mile where you end at the river. Wide, well-maintained path, beware of cross roads.
