The gate to Huntington Park is often closed, even when the park is open.
It’s just one of the access problems to a park that’s mainly a series of steps offering dramatic views of lower Spokane Falls and the spillway of the Monroe Street Dam.
Avista Corp., which owns the location, hopes to make Huntington Park more welcoming with a street-level plaza, crosswalk, landscaping and sidewalk.
“Right now you get the feeling that you don’t know if you really belong,” said Speed Fitzhugh, Avista’s Spokane River license manager.
