Create an itinerary including Manito Park
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.

  • Best park in Spokane! Stunning variety of unique and well maintained gardens, lovely greenhouse, large duck pond, numerous walking paths, playgrounds, splash pad and restrooms. Beautiful anytime of the year. In the summer they have a nice outdoor cafe where you can get drinks, lunch or ice cream. In the winter the have a light show in the greenhouse and throughout the park.
  • Absolutely stunning park! Enjoyed every minute we spent in here exploring the classic gardens, rose garden, and Japanese garden. We walked around the whole park and I feel like I could go back tomorrow and spend another few hours walking around again! The roses smelled so lovely!
