Spokane's Best Parks -

Audubon Park is 27 acres of rolling Ponderosa Pines, playgrounds, splash pads, ball fields and basketball courts. Located in northwest Spokane in the Audubon / Downriver neighborhood, Audubon Park anchors one of the quaintest neighborhoods in town. Acreage and playground space in the park gets a boost from Finch Elementary, located in Audubon’s northeast corner. Therefore, if the park’s playgrounds are a bit too rough and tumble for your toddler, you can wander up to the school and utilize their toddler-oriented playground and feel a bit more secure in their fenced-in play areas.

Audubon Park is also a popular destination for events. District 81 utilizes it as a cross-country course during the fall and, on those long hot summer nights, you can enjoy an open air concert sponsored by Spokane’s Northwest Neighborhood Council.

Audubon Park rests on a gentle hill that entertains sledders during the snowy months and its mature trees provide plenty of shade on warm summer days. Between the splash pads and the playgrounds, Audubon is a prime venue to host a birthday party or any number of family-oriented events.
