Riverfront Park Spokane WA

Riverfront Park and its Majestic Waterfalls

Dreams of creating this park to encompass the Spokane Falls go way back to as early as 1908. The potential was evident. And now, we truly have the gift of being born in the present times to able to live out those dreams. Nowadays, when people think of Spokane, they think of this dreamscape of a park.

This 100-acre park is created along the Spokane falls. This park is covered on both sides by the northern and southern parts of the river. That makes the park more like a peninsula. Its geographical wonder is what makes this park special, as it creates the largest urban waterfall in the country and makes it the ideal attraction for tourists and residents alike.

There are lots of activities to do here, and you could easily spend a whole day lost in its splendor before you go through it all. From the Spokane’s River Park Square and Convention center to dozens of restaurants, 5-star hotels, award-winning wineries, this park has it all. And it allows visitors to witness the best of Riverfront Park’s scenic majesty whilst experiencing those delights.

There are plenty of restaurants overlooking the river and its waterfalls. Take advantage of that and dine to your heart’s content.

Or if you’re feeling more adventurous, pack your picnic baskets and bring your family to somewhere shaded. On the vast swaths of open space, you can pick a spot under the great mature trees. Just kick back and relax, letting the rushing waters melt your stress away.

Have I even mentioned the biking and walking trails? The 40 miles paved Centennial Trail takes you through the best scenic spots in this park. Walkers, joggers, and bikers would be fools to miss this opportunity. Take a long stroll along the river, and bring your dog as well. This place has been under renovation for a long time, and even though most are done, there are spots that you can’t access as of this writing.

Attractions

Pavilion: This was a gift to Spokane from the United States government. If you like dynamic displays of colorful lights, patterns, and different shows that are performed all-year-round, then you’ll love this pavilion. There are many plans for improvement and construction for this particular attraction, like hosting the Bloomsday Award Ceremony, its summer concert series, and the Hoopfest Nike Court game.

Numerica SkyRide: Inside these sky cabins, you’ll bear witness breathtaking views of one of the largest urban waterfalls in the nation on the 15-minute ride.

Unfortunately, the rest of the attractions of this section are currently closed due to COVID-19.

Numerica Skate Ribbon: There is an ice rink course in the mainland part of the park named and shaped like a ribbon with a nearby cafe to enjoy. You are welcome to bring your own roller skates, skateboards, and non-motorized scooters.

Pedal Karts: You can opt to use Riverfront’s Pedal Karts to discover all the must-sees of the park. The seats are adjustable and suitable for adults and children from the age of 5 and up.

The Spider Jump: Ever felt like bungee jumping and playing with trampolines were dangerous? Well, now you don’t have to worry. Picture jumping on a trampoline while being fastened by bungee cords from both sides for stability. Now that sounds fun, safe, and, if you dare, envy-inducing for stunt artists. Perform all sorts of mid-air maneuvers that are risk-free and somehow even more fun and exhilarating.

Looff Carrousel: This is most popular with kids and those who never stopped feeling young. This memory from your childhood has come back to life and now welcomes you with open arms, no matter your age. These carrousels are works of beauty and are hand-carved with love.

For your visual pleasure

Do remember to bring a camera. This park has some prime spots to take hundreds of pictures for you to look back on later. You are highly recommended to pick the gondola for a trip around the river while the rocking boat gently rocks you into a state of utter relaxation. Be sure to check out the sculptures and other artwork that are left for you to admire.
