Fantastic area to walk, relax in the heart of downtown Spokane. City planners have a true "jewel" to attract locals and visitors, alike

In 1974 Spokane hosted a World's Fair in what became Riverfront Park. Today it's in the midst of a massive renovation which renders much of this beautiful park inaccessible. Still worth a visit to enjoy green grass and beautiful river walks, but WAIT TIL 2018...More

This is one of the best aspects of Spokane. They are currently updating some area, that were originally done over for the Worlds Fair in 1978. If you don't walk around here you are nuts!

I would suggest the convention center lot north of the park. On street parking is harder to find than usual. There is extensive remodeling of the park near the mall parking garage. This involves the west side of the park... More
