This spring, with revised protocols under Washington’s Roadmap to Recovery, City of Spokane Parks & Recreation is safely offering the most robust assortment of recreation opportunities in over a year.

“We’re excited to begin restoring more traditional offerings, plus some exciting new ones,” said Recreation director Jennifer Papich. “I’ve been very proud of how our team has adapted to safely provide recreation opportunities throughout the past year despite all of the challenges, and we are excited by this forward momentum.”

With over 100 programs available this spring and summer, there are recreation programs for every interest and ability. Highlights include:


Adult Athletics

Softball, Flag Football, Volleyball, and even a Cornhole League are in the mix this spring. With divisions for all skill levels, anyone is welcome to join in the fun at our region’s best sports facilities. No team? No problem. Our staff will pair up free agents; a great way to meet new people and build community.


Youth Athletics

Cornhole League, Girls Fastpitch, Disc Golf (with partners United States Youth Disc Golf Association), Pickleball, Badminton, Gymnastics, and Martial Arts are all available this spring, along with the much anticipated return of the popular NFL Flag youth football league. Partners from USTA, SkyHawks, and SuperTots also offer tennis, basketball, soccer, volleyball, cheerleading, and more for ages 26mos – 12yrs.



Washington is full of beautiful places to explore – sometimes it just takes the right people to show them to you. In this case, it’s Parks & Recreation’s knowledgeable and friendly guides! Explore Hog Lake, Steamboat Rock, Eagle Peak or the Rocks or Sharon on a hiking trip this spring. Plus, take advantage of that great spring runoff and come on a rafting or kayaking trip. Whether you’re looking for a casual float or an adrenaline boosting whitewater trip, Parks & Recreation has you covered.


Therapeutic Recreation Services

Indoor ice skating, swimming lessons, baking classes, arts and crafts, fun trips, tours and more! City of Spokane Parks & Recreation’s Therapeutic Recreation Services program has a host of fun opportunities just for those with disabilities.
