Riverfront Park

Spokane, WA

At the heart of Eastern Washington’s Inland Empire, Spokane Falls is a sacred gathering space and historic fishing grounds of the Spokane Tribe. The falls’ tremendous waterpower gave birth to the city, supported Spokane’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 has again been reimagined as an ever more vibrant and sustainable Riverfront Park. Berger Partnership shaped the 100+ acre redevelopment master plan and led it to reality in 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, renovating the treasured Looff Carrousel and the newly iconic Havermale Island Pavilion. The reimagined park assures the power of Spokane Falls will continue draw people to gather for generations to come.
