A public park, Riverfront Park spans 40 hectares (100 acres) and has features ranging from bike trails and walking paths, to a sculpture walk and IMAX theater. The park’s position along the Spokane River offers some of the best views of the falls. To see the falls close up, take a 15-minute ride in the SkyRide gondola. Get into nature on one of the many walking paths or by biking the Great Centennial Trail, which has access points from the park. Kids will love the many amusement rides, as well as the Looff Carrousel, which is over 100 years old and is featured on the National Register of Historic Places. You can finish off your day by grabbing a bite to eat at the Pavilion Cafe.

Riverfront Park Reviews
Gorgeous scenery! I really wish the wagon was a little safer though. I didn't feel like I could let my two year old go down the slide by himself like he can at other parks because of the two-story drop from the top. A guard rail on the sides for a few feet would go so far towards keeping little people safe, and enabling parents to let their kiddos play independently.
What a great place! Lots of fun to find here. We were a little disappointed in the disorganization around renting out the pedal karts, but glad it worked out in the end. The gondola ride was fabulous and the spider jump was a lot cheaper than other places we've tried. Of course the carousel was classic fun! Great trails, can't wait to see what else they add here.
