Shelters and Venues

Snxw Meneɂ

Snxw Meneɂ (formerly known as Canada Island) is located in the North Channel and the Upper Falls of the Spokane River in Riverfront Park. There are two locations on the island that are used for weddings; a small meadow located at the west end of the island and the Alberta Amphitheatre. Both venues will accommodate approximately 150 people.

No decorations, sound system or chairs are included with a reservation for either of these areas. Electrical power is available at no extra charge. Reservations are required for use of Snxw Meneɂ.

Forestry Shelter

Nestled among the trees and green meadows of the east side of Riverfront Park is the Forestry Shelter. The shelter and surrounding green space is a very popular location for company picnics, convention barbecues, and any outdoor activity you may be planning.

Havermale Point

Havermale Point sits to the immediate east of our Forestry Shelter. This location has slightly sloped lawn with a cement platform at the base, making it a great area for weddings, concerts and company picnics.

Northbank Shelter

This shelter is located on the beautiful north bank of the Spokane River, overlooking the upper Spokane Falls and Canada Island. It is east of the historic Flour Mill and near the Spokane Arena. It is a great location for company and convention lunches, dinners, and for any group gathering.

Red Wagon Meadow

Located right across the street from downtown, the Red Wagon Meadow is enjoyed by those young and old with its iconic and nostalgic interactive piece of public art.

Clock tower Meadow

Originally part of the Great Northern Railway Depot, the Clocktower is a central landmark that is easily located. Whether rented in conjunction with the surrounding venues or on its own, the Clocktower Meadow has an intimate feel with great views of the river and downtown Spokane.

Lilac Bowl

This natural amphitheater is one of our most versatile venues. With two surrounding venues to easily add on, this area is ideal for large scale events and concerts. Located across from the INB Center, the Lilac Bowl is a beautiful blend of nature and city.

Tribal Gathering Place

Located right outside of City Hall, this gathering place is ideal for engaging community events. From solar eclipse viewing parties to menu samplings, this visible space offers an open and welcoming environment.
