A big draw to live in Spokane is the number of parks and outdoor activities offered by the city. Manito Park is a wonderful place to spend a few hours or a whole day enjoying the outdoors. The park offers amenities to suit just about anyone. Spring and summer are the seasons to visit the many flower gardens at Manito. Rose Hill boasts 150 varieties of roses, with gravel paths connecting the many beds of roses. The garden is situated on top of a gentle hill, giving visitors a relaxing stroll. The Joel E. Ferris Perennial Garden holds 300 varieties of flowers, which bloom in luscious colors in spring. The Nishinomiya Japanese Garden was conceived as part of the sister city relationship between Spokane and Nishinomiya, Japan. It was dedicated in 1974 and is a tranquil spot for meditation or a quiet walk. Spokane living is at its finest in the vibrant gardens of Manito Park in spring.
