AAA Editor Notes
Riverfront Park is off I-90 at 507 N. Howard St. The centerpiece of this 100-acre park is the Spokane River, which forms a series of cataracts before plunging over the main drop of Spokane Falls. Prior to 1974, industrial activities and rail yards dominated the site, which was cleared and redeveloped for Expo '74. The park offers a mix of green spaces and attractions built for and after the world's fair.
Spokane Falls SkyRide Over the Falls affords scenic views of the falls and park. A network of walkways links all sections of the park. Pedestrian bridges lead to Havermale Island, featuring the former U.S. Pavilion, an IMAX theater with a five-story screen and a Clock Tower, part of the former 1902 Great Northern Depot. Other attractions are an interactive fountain, the Spokane Sculpture Walk, mini-golf and a giant Red Wagon play structure. Seasonal attractions include amusement and pony rides, a Park Tour Train and an outdoor winter Ice Palace offering ice-skating. Special events take place throughout the year.
Note: The park is undergoing construction through 2019. Some attractions may be unavailable; phone ahead for details.
