Riverfront Park

Riverfront Park Logo

When people think Spokane, they think Riverfront Park. From the thundering Spokane Falls to the towering, historic Great Northern Clocktower to the hand-carved Looff Carrousel, the sprawling 100-acre campus is home to many of the region’s most iconic attractions.

Scenic Beauty
The Spokane River flows through the heart of Riverfront Park and the area serves as a showcase for the water’s natural beauty and power.  Come spring, the river’s falls rustle through the park. During high flow times in the spring, visitors can literally feel the hydraulic power as the water’s spray can be felt from pedestrian bridges and shoreline vantage points. Check out Explore the Spokane Falls for a map of vantage points and restaurants with river views.

Walking and Biking
One of the best ways to enjoy Riverfront Park is to explore the scenic trail system. The 40-mile paved Centennial Trail travels through the park, allowing walkers, joggers and bikers to explore the Spokane River for miles in either direction.

For a short sojourn, take the trail west from the park. After you cross Post Street, the trail dips below the Monroe Street Bridge for a spectacular view of the lower falls. Continue traveling west where you’ll pass shops and restaurants and discover more viewing stations.

To get even closer to the falls, walk the cascading tiers of neighboring Huntington Park. To get there, travel just west of Riverfront Park through the Spokane Tribal Gathering Place adjacent to City Hall. Then, revel in stunning views as the park’s stairs and tiers skirt the roaring water. From March through May, the hydraulic force is so powerful visitors can feel the ground shake.  

Check out Explore the Spokane Falls to find bike rental shops, guided tours, a trail map and more.

Families and friends can spend a whole day touring Riverfront Park’s attractions. Check out the 1909 Looff Carrousel, the gondola Spokane Falls SkyRide Over the Falls, the IMAX Theatre, the Pavilion amusement rides, the outdoor covered Ice Palace, the mini-golf course, the Park Tour Train and more.

Riverfront Park’s central location makes it the ideal attraction for visitors. The Spokane Convention Center, River Park Square (our huge downtown mall), dozens of restaurants, award-winning wineries and major hotels  all surround the park, allowing visitors to experience the best of Spokane’s shops, restaurants and scenic beauty.
