Spokane Riverfront Park

On a recent trip to my hometown of Spokane, Washington, I took the opportunity to capture some images of Riverfront Park and the nearby surroundings in downtown Spokane.  All images below and more are available to purchase for prints and products at www.shobestudios.com by clicking the image.

The first view here is of the Washington Water Power Buildings located on the Spokane River near to the Monroe Street Bridge.  It is a spectacular view at anytime as the water passes by to create the falls.  Visitors can take a ride aboard a gondola that passes over the water and under the bridge.

On the opposite side from the first image, a public walkway provides an even closer look of the scene.  The fresh snow and the nighttime lights offer a colorful sight.

The view towards the park from N. Post Bridge.  The location of Riverfront Park is the former location of Expo ’74, a World’s Fair.  This event was a huge leap forward for the city of Spokane and has been a popular place to visit by locals and tourists ever since.   It is now a 100-acre park used all year long for activities and events.

Several walking bridges allows for visitors to experience the area from different angles and to explore all portions of the park’s features.

This view is one of many like it that cause a person to just stand there and see the sights while listening to the sounds.

And I couldn’t get out of there without taking atleast one close-up shot of the U.S. Pavilion….it appears that it can use some rust remover and paint though!
