Expanded Marketing - Blueprint for a Dream

We've got a very unique piece of art and machinery in our carrousel. It's not just an antique carrousel, but it's one of very few antique carrousels in the country that still has all of its original figures as well as its original band organ.

Because of its wide appeal, our carrousel has the potential of drawing in customers who may be interested in other attractions at Riverfront Park:

Present flower bed blocking vista and access to Howard Street corridor. Just imagine...A redesign would create a more open plaza with new creative surfaces
Natural Resources
The expansion of the gondola, the opening up of the river vistas and pathways, and the addition of important support facilities would enhance the natural area experience and marketing appeal of Riverfront Park.

Historic Tourism Marketing
The return to a traditional carrousel building would give instant recognition of what lies within. This also enhances the current growing trend of historical marketing of Spokane's greatest treasures.

A user friendly and improved South Entrance would open up Riverfront Park, the river and the north-south corridors. This would prepare the park for future automated people-movers to the north bank area and its future improvements.

Convention Marketing
It's hard to disguise a big red wagon, but we have done a great job of hiding our beautiful, antique carrousel. The carrousel enjoys being part of the attraction of activities held at the Spokane Convention Center. With the new expansion of the convention facility, the new fountain, a new gondola facility, and a new recognizable carrousel structure, the marketing appeal of Spokane broadens greatly. It is what separates Spokane from just any other "convention location!" and is why it is now often included in convention activities.
