The first major renovation of Riverfront Park in decades is a step closer to becoming reality. The Spokane Park Board approved the 2014 Riverfront Park Master Plan along with its accompanying funding package in a special session on Friday. The plan, which encompasses $60 million in park improvements, would be funded by a voter-approved bond measure on the Nov. 4 ballot. While the board unanimously passed a resolution asking for the bond measure, board member Preston Potratz dissented on the park’s master plan, which passed 10-1. Potratz expressed hesitation that the plan wasn’t vetted enough by outside experts/Daniel Moore, SR. More here.

Question: When & for what reason did you last visit Riverfront Park?
