The best parks in Spokane

Published: April 1, 2014

This is a list of the best parks in Spokane! Whether you want to hike, picnic, play or relax, these are the nicest parks in our area. The Pacific Northwest is a great place to visit and an even better place to live. Our parks are awesome! Enjoy your time outdoors!

  1. Manito Park

    No matter what the time of year, Manito Park offers entertainment and beauty. The park features greenhouse sales, the rose gardens, the Japanese gardens, the paths, walkways, duck ponds, kids park and the seasonal cafe. The area around the park is beautiful and the winter sledding is awesome! This park is the best!

  2. Finch Arboretum

    Finch Arboretum offers a beautiful setting and a way to learn about our local trees. A great way to spend part of the day with your kids or with your significant other. The park has several walkways, bridges, picnic areas and beautiful trees. Dogs aren't allowed here, but its still worth the trip!

  3. Iller Creek - Dishman Hills Conservation Area

    The Dishman Conservation Area is a great place for the family, hikers, dogs, campers and picnic goers. There are almost 1600 acres of wildlife, views and birdwatching activities. The park is located just 5 miles from downtown Spokane. Get out of the city and experience a beautiful, nearby park with aweome views of Eastern Washington.

I think Manito Park is our most beautiful park. The landscape is breathtaking and it chances drastically throughout the seasons. The spring is completely different then the winter, but they are equally stunning and full of wonder, with opportunities for personal expression. There are so many things to experience at this park!
