Riverfront Park

Spokane, WA

At the heart of Eastern Washington and the Inland Empire, Spokane Falls traces its early history as a sacred gathering space and fishing grounds of the Spokane tribe and later the birthplace of the city. The falls’ tremendous waterpower supported the city’s industry and spurred railroad stations and freight yards. A forward-looking vision transformed the site into the home of Expo ’74 and today’s Riverfront Park. 40+ years after hosting the Expo, this much-loved regional center is again ready to be reimagined as an ever more vibrant and sustainable Riverfront Park. Our work includes creating the Howard Street Promenade, weaving the park into a more functional whole while connecting it to downtown, as well as creating new park space on the river’s northern bank and renovating the treasured Looff Carousel and Havermale Island Pavilion. The project broke ground in summer 2016, and phased construction will continue through 2019, assuring the power of Spokane Falls will continue draw people to gather on its shores for generations to come
