The hand carved wooden creations of the carrousel include 54 carved horses, one tiger, one giraffe and two Chinese dragon chairs. This attraction located in the scenic 100 acre Riverfront Park in the heart of downtown Spokane is an exciting experience you do not want to miss.

Clock Tower
Land on Havermale Island (Riverfront Park) was provided to the people of Spokane by the Burlington Northern Railroad to serve as the center of the World Expo in 1974.

The clock tower of the former Great Northern Railway passenger depot, built in 1902 now stands as a monument to the railroad industry and it's role in the development of Spokane and the Pacific Northwest.

Caretakers must stand inside the clock to set or wind it. The clock must be wound with a large crank once each week from inside the clockworks room at the top of the tower.

This whimsical interactive garbage eating goat sculpture by Paula Turnbull was donated to the city of Spokane by the Women's Council of Realtors for the World's Fair and Expo in 1974. It sits beside the historic Looff Carousel in Riverfront Park, located in the heart of downtown Spokane.

Pressing the button mounted on the basalt rocks behind this sculpture activates a powerful vacuum and children and adults alike can feed garbage and leaves to this veracious critter.
