Manito Park is a beautiful 90 acre park in Spokane, WA. A few days ago I took a long walk around the park. I hadn’t been there since wintertime, and everything was covered in snow then. So join me as I walk from the NE parking lot counter clockwise around and through the park. I took all these photos on my Samsung phone.
We first come to Mirror Pond. Last time I saw it, it was frozen.
Next we come to the Nishinomiya Tsutakawa Japanese Garden. This isn’t open in the winter. It is a nice place to sit and meditate.
Then we walk up a hill to Rose Hill. It has a Gazebo and a couple other roman looking structures, along with benches to sit on.
Walking down from Rose hill, walking south, leads us to Duncan Garden, a more formal garden setting with another Gazebo, fountains, and these lovely arches to talk through on the east and west sides.
North of Duncan Gardens is Gaiser Conservatory. During the winter Holiday season it is filled with holiday plants and many colored lights. Below you’ll find a link to a holiday post I did.
And lastly, we come to my favorite, the Joel E. Ferris Perennial Garden.
The park has two playgrounds, numerous paths, many benches, and during part of the year a cafe is open with outdoor tables for seating. No matter what season, there are many gardens and plants, much beauty and peaceful spots for walking, running or just sitting and contemplating all that nature offers us.
Here are three more posts I’ve done on Manito Park:

Thanks for joining me on this walk. If you are in the area, come check it out. There is always something to see, no matter the season.
