Rockwood

rockwood

In 1913, the city of Spokane hired John and Frederick Jr. Olmsted, sons of Frederick Law Olmsted, who designed Central Park in NYC to create a master plan for Spokane’s parks and landscape architecture.

What followed was a design for the Rockwood area that included a winding drive through the neighborhood lined with deciduous trees and areas of promenades. Today, the Rockwood community, located on Spokane’s South Hill, is a designated historic district on the National Register of Historic Places. It is truly a gorgeous neighborhood that embodies every season. Pride of home ownership is evident in the stately mansions, vintage bungalows and turn-of-the-century craftsmans that dominate the area.
