Spokane FallsNatural phenomenon , Natural environment
The waterfalls of Spokane in the webcam are located in the heart of the city of the same name, on the territory of Riverfront Park. Rolling down the rapids, the river in the online camera in this very place forms turbulent streams of water revolving around obstacles.
In the place shown in the live broadcast, the Spokane River divides into two parts and goes around a small island in two streams, on both sides of which there is a height difference of 18 meters. Therefore, the river, turning into the Spokane waterfall in the webcam, falls down with a powerful stream. This spectacle looks especially bright in the spring.
Citizens often come to Riverfront Park in an online camera to admire the waterfalls of Spokane in a live broadcast.
Along the embankment, which is slightly visible in the webcam, there are several viewing platforms with a live view of the picturesque waterfall.
Interesting fact: In 1974, Riverfront Park served as the location of the pavilions of the Expo-74 exhibition, and the Spokane Falls in the web camera were a wonderful natural setting for an event of this magnitude.
Spokane, where the online broadcast is conducted from, is a city of businessmen, almost unknown to tourists.
The history of the city in the live camera is reflected in the appearance of its neighborhoods: they all have a specific look, from South Hill and Brown’s Addition in the Victorian style and the Davenport Art District in the city center to the more modern areas of northern Spokane. The historical business center houses administration buildings and offices. Among them stands out the district court with high spiers. Opposite the Cathedral of Our Lady of Lourdes stands the city’s Georgian Athletic Club.
What to do in Spokane?
- Ride the historic 1909 carousel in Riverfront Park, part of which is shown online. This landmark is listed on the US National Register of Historic Places as one of the most beautiful and well-preserved handmade wooden carousels.
- Explore a variety of city monuments in Riverfront Park and beyond: a statue of a local astronaut who died in the shuttle Columbia, a huge Japanese lantern, a sheet iron garbage goat, and the spiral poem “The Place Where Salmon Ghosts Jump.”
- Take a cable car ride over the Spokane Falls in a webcam.
- Take a photo of the clock tower with an amber dial illuminated at night.
In addition to the above activities, while traveling around Spokane, where the live broadcast is coming from, it is interesting to visit Coeur d’Alene Park and the Museum of Art and Culture, as well as see the 1897 Patsy Clark Mansion.
Guests of the city in the live camera do not disregard the arched Monroe Street Bridge, thrown over the Spokane river Falls in the webcam. This bridge is considered to be one of the most recognizable city symbols.
There is another interesting building in the city where this online camera is located – the Old National Bank, 66 meters high, erected in 1911 and becoming the first skyscraper in the northwest.
Livestreamed Spokane has some great green spaces. For example, Manito Park, opened in 1904. On its grounds is Duncan Gardens, a classic symmetrical European Renaissance style garden with a central fountain and a conservatory with exotic plants. Also, the park has a rose garden, a lilac garden, a Japanese garden with bridges and a pond filled with carps, a duck pond and a picnic area.
