Designed by the famous Olmstead Brothers, Manito Park features beautifully manicured lawns, many gardens, and a greenhouse conservatory, all set on 36 hectares (90 acres). The name means Spirit of Nature in the Algonquian language, and that's what you'll find here, with flowers, topiaries, and tall trees lining well-kept paths designed for walking and cycling. The park offers facilities for baseball, sledding, tennis, bird watching, and even Frisbee golf. Kids will be entertained in the two playgrounds and can enjoy feeding the ducks and geese in the duck pond. Until 1932, the park was a zoo, but it closed due to lack of funding during the Depression. You can still see remnants of the old zoo, such as the rock with an iron bar stuck in it, once part of the cage for bears.

We took the chance of visiting manito on a rainy day- the flowers were not there yet since it’s not the season yet for the spring flowers but we went into the greenhouse and it was beautiful inside ! ... more »
Wonderful place for a walk. Great place to chill and enjoy watching the ducks. Love taking the kids to play at the playground. Perfect place to take pictures. Many flowers to enjoy in different parts of the park. By far my favorite park in Spokane!
Folks don’t need me to tell them how beautiful and awesome this place is. It is though. I would have to say the people who take care of it truly love it and are dedicated to its beauty. I never see any trash on the ground and everything is manicured to perfection. It’s different every time of the year you go there. No matter what season it is it is still beautiful.
