Mirabeau Point Park and Discovery Playground

Both kids and adults will enjoy exploring this 55-acre park

Mirabeau Point Park host Spokane Valley’s CenterPlace Regional Event Center, Discovery Playground, Mirabeau Springs and waterfall, Mirabeau Meadows, and the adjacent natural area which boast numerous walking trails and wildflowers in the spring. The park formerly housed Walk in the Wild Zoo, but the zoo closed several years ago and the city developed the site into a public park and event facility. On Friday evenings during the summer, both hometown locals and visitors can enjoy the Spokane Valley Farmers Market which brings together local farmers, ranchers, food producers, arts and crafts vendors, food trucks and musicians. Please follow appropriate social distancing rules when visiting the park and attending any events.

The park is home to CenterPlace Regional Event Center, a 54,000-square foot facility that offers both indoor and outdoor space for conferences, business meetings, banquets, community activities, weddings and more. The building also houses the Spokane Valley Senior Center, and the city’s Parks and Recreation Department. A large public parking area is located in front of the building. The city recently installed a large hardscaped plaza lined with trees and outdoor lighting to provide additional space for outdoor events. The plaza provides a great space for vendor booths and includes new restrooms, stage and dance area, and food service building.
