Cliff Park is brilliant in its simplicity yet unique in many ways. Clocking in at the 5 th spot on Spokane’s Best Parks list, it’s also the smallest of the bunch (only 4.2 acres).

There are no playgrounds or splash pads or ball fields at Cliff Park, just meandering trails that lead you to the top of the cliff. Children love getting lost in the park’s trail network.
