STATE PARKS - Although Riverside State Park is a stunning gem of recreational opportunity along the Spokane River on the west side of Spokane, most people don't know half of what if offers.

That's why the Riverside State Park Foundation  and park staff are inviting the public to sample more than a dozen organized activities at seven park venues during an ambitious free Experience Riverside State Park event Sunday from 9 a.m.-4 p.m.

The list of activities includes horse and pony rides, orienteering, fun run, guided bike rides and hikes, kayak and canoe rides, ATV rides, kids activities and fur-trader encampment tours.

Venues are the equestrian area, Bowl & Pitcher, military runway, ORV park, Spokane House, park headquarters and the Nine Mile Recreation Site.

Check out a map and complete list of activities.

If you're game for it all, you can get a punch card stamped at each site and be eligible for prizes.

The sites also will have educational opportunities, such as water safety tips, Centennial Tail information, and a look at proposed park renovation plans.
