Spokane, WA | Riverfront Park

Hi Colleagues,

Enjoy this pixel-roll of Spokane's Riverfront Park, which we visited when I studied for my MA-ComL at Gonzaga University (Go Zags!):











Riverfront Park enjoys 100 acres of land of the 3 million acres once protected and respected by the Spokane Tribe, including the Spokane River, which flows 111 miles, and Spokane Falls.  The park's rich and varied history includes Expo '74, or the World's Fair themed, "Celebrating Tomorrow's Fresh New Environment." About 5.6 million people attended the Expo then.  In present day we enjoyed watching people play in the fountain on the hot summer day. I liked the perennials and tower.

As for me, I graduated with a MA in Communication and Leadership Studies at Gonzaga University.  I appreciated visiting scenic grounds while studying for my degree.  See more Gonzaga, read about my graduate studies, and visit my growing collection of Community Profiles.

Children of the So/un,
Dena
