You have a deck of cards. What happens when you shuffle the deck? You have the same deck, in perhaps a different order, but still the same deck.
That’s what the city proposes for Riverfront Park. For $60 million you get the same park moved around and dressed up. Since Expo ’74, the park has barely been more than a place to meet for holidays. I think for $60 million you should be able to make something that would be a drawing card for Spokane, something to bring in tourists.
Creativity seems to be lacking in the city these days. Maybe we should wait for Expo 2074 before going crazy and moving the ice skating rink.
