Help us plan for expansions to Riverside State Park!
Washington State Parks and Recreation Commission invites you to take our planning survey to support a park expansion opportunity at Riverside State Park. This survey is part of a public planning process to potentially incorporate ‘Glen Tana’ into the existing park boundary and should take approximately five minutes to complete.
This multi-staged public planning process, referred to as CAMP, identifies issues and opportunities, explores alternative approaches, and makes recommendations for park land classifications, a long-term boundary, and a park management plan. When complete, this combination constitutes a land use plan which will be presented to the Parks and Recreation Commission for adoption.
Area Description and Background
Glen Tana is just over 1,000 acres, including a large stretch of habitat along the Little Spokane River and a large upland area home to Ponderosa Pine and Douglas Fir that provides wildlife habitat for bald eagles, moose, and many more species. This project expands public access to a natural area near the urban edge of Spokane, connecting visitors to the existing Waikiki Springs Nature Preserve and extending both a recreational trail and a habitat corridor.
