Spokane River Water to Wine

Celebrate Spokane River access success

Looking forward to the Spokane River Forum's Water to Wine Event this October! I've been on the board for the Spokane River Forum for a few years now and am honored to be involved with Andy Dunau's organization. Andy and his colleagues are instrumental in Spokane River access which benefits you, Spokane anglers, and other recreational folks that enjoy our hometown river.

This year's benefit is a very special one. The Maryhill Venue in Kendall Yards overlooks the latest Spokane River boat access site at Glover Field which is now been renamed, Redband Park. Redband Park will be the uppermost boat launch site which is situated below the falls and opens up the greater Spokane Gorge to anglers looking to drift as well as rafters and kayakers. We all will benefit from this monumental achievement.

We donated a Spokane River fly fishing float trip which will be utilizing this new boat slide access. Please join us in celebrating this new access and raise some money for signage and outreach for this new location. If you love to use the Spokane and plan on using this new boat access give back and help support the efforts that took five years to accomplish, we hope to see you there!

From the Spokane River Forum

This year's auction theme is a "Spokane River Rally for Redband Park." The winery gives us a stunning view of the Spokane River, allowing us to gaze out and celebrate our most ambitious effort yet ... building the Redband Boat Launch at Redband Park. Five years in development and set to be complete this fall, the launch will offer premier river access for angling, paddling and rafting through the Spokane River's Great Gorge.

"By working with the City, the Spokane Tribe of Indians, Spokane Indians Baseball and others, Redband Park is set to become a destination attraction with more features than we originally imagined," said Andy Dunau, Executive Director of the Forum. "In addition to the boat launch, features currently being installed include expanded parking, a restroom, a 3.5 mile loop trail through Peaceful Valley and Kendall Yards, a new playground, and a rehabilitated ball field for youth sports. And more ideas are percolating through the system."
