Spokane Riverfront Park
A Scenic Place To Visit
There's a natural oasis in downtown Spokane. Riverfront Park is a 100 acre park that lies along the Spokane River and the upper Spokane Falls. The park was created for the 1974 World's Fair Expo, and since then, it's been the ideal place to spend an afternoon in Spokane. Locals visit the park's attractions, like The Riverfront Park Carousel, IMAX theatre, amusement park for kids, and skating rink in the winter. The park hosts community events throughout the year, including Hoopfest and the 4th of July fireworks. Park walkways and bridges connect with the Centennial Trail as it heads east to Coeur d'Alene, Idaho. Escape from the urban core, and go jogging, bicycling, or simply stroll.
There's much history behind Riverfront Park. Native Americans traveled to the spectacular Spokane Falls for their summer salmon harvest. Today, you can cross the waterfalls by the SkyRide gondola. The Clock Tower, built in 1902, serves as the park's focal point. When much of the surroundings were demolished in preparation for Expo '74, the Clock Tower was preserved. Today, it's a reminder of Spokane's railroad history.
Riverfront Park is right out your doorstep when you stay at Hotel RL Spokane at the Park. Unwind and let things roll by slowly.
