Spokane Valley is the ideal jumping off point for outdoor adventures. The city lies along both banks of the beautiful Spokane River. Visitors can book a guided fishing, paddling or rafting trip. Kayaking enthusiasts can enjoy park and play rapids such as Sullivan Hole and Zoo Wave. For those who prefer to experience the river by foot or bike, the paved Centennial Trail runs along the shore. At Mirabeau Point Park, hikers can explore 55 acres, or bring the kids to CenterPlace's multi-sensory Discovery Playground.
The Dishman Hills Nature Area trails weave through nearly 2,500 acres of nature preserve. In the winter, world-class skiing can be found at five regional resorts.
