As we’ve covered in a previous blog, there are plenty of outdoor areas to explore here in Spokane this spring. From Manito to Dishman, there is no shortage of beautiful scenery to walk through on a warm spring day. Grab some joints, rally up your friends, and head out on a stoner’s expedition. There’s no better feeling than lighting up a joint as you sit on a log overlooking a shimmering body of water. Let the sun touch your skin and go out and enjoy a day at one of Spokane’s many beautiful parks and natural areas.
Cat Tales Wildlife Center
This spring, the sun is out and so are the big cats. With the weather warming up, the cats over at Cat Tales Wildlife Center are sure to be out and about more often now that the cold winter weather won’t have them holed up inside. Cat Tales Wildlife Center is a safe forever home for rescued, retired, or non-releasable exotic animals and wildlife here in Spokane. They provide shelter, nutrition, veterinary care, cleanliness, compassion, and choice to each and every one of the cats under their care. At Cat Tales, not only can you lay your eyes upon some of the most beautiful exotic creatures, you can feed them too! For those brave enough, you can give treats to lions, tigers, and bears (oh my!) for an additional fee. Plan your adventure at Cat Tales Wildlife Center today!
We can’t talk about springtime in Spokane without talking about Bloomsday! This annual race has been a staple of Spokane’s culture since 1977. Bloomsday draws in thousands of runners from all across the country every year in the world’s largest timed road race. This 12K run isn’t just for runners. Walkers, wheelchair users, and even kids in strollers are invited to participate in this all-inclusive event. Get ready for this year’s Bloomsday being held on Sunday, May 1st and register today!
This spring is the perfect time to enjoy all the fun there is to have at Riverfront Park. Stop by April 6th, 13th, 20th, and 27th from 3pm-7pm to enjoy the springtime Riverfront Market! Here, you’ll be able to support local artists, food vendors, musicians, and service providers at one of many booths set up at Riverfront Park.
You can also enjoy a scenic ride over the Spokane River on the Numerica SkyRide this spring. These little purple gondolas let you enjoy a 15-minute round-trip past art deco City Hall that gradually drops down 200 feet over the Huntington Park Natural Area, across the Spokane River in front of one set of the falls, and under the historic Monroe Street Bridge before finally returning to Riverfront Park.
If you’re looking to splash around this spring, you’re in luck. The Riverfront Rotary Fountain will kick back into gear starting this May. This fountain features five stainless steel columns that shoot water 24 feet into the air. With its combined 40 overhead jets, the fountain creates a dome-like waterfall at the center along with eight geysers that shoot water into the sky. This fountain is open to the public and offers a fun way to cool off in the sun.
Make an event out of throwing out your old candy wrapper along your walk by stopping by the infamous garbage goat. This goat was created by the Welding Nun for the 1974 Spokane World’s Fair. Just go visit the goat and push the button on the wall to have the goat suck up any paper trash or litter you may have with you. Be careful though! Sucking up larger items like cups and cans could clog the goat and cigarette butts could pose a potential fire hazard.
Skate & Wheels Park
Lastly, at Riverfront Park you can shred at the Skate & Wheels Park! This park features full-sized bowls, hubbas, ledges, rails, and enough transition to keep you skating for hours. Skate & Wheels is welcoming to newbies and pros alike as they offer both mellow and steep features for skaters of all levels.
