Comstock Park Celebrates 75 Years | Community Spirit
You're invited to a party celebrating Comstock Park's 75th birthday! The park was dedicated on July 1st, 1938 and on Thursday evening it will be officially rededicated, celebrating the park's history and importance to the South Hill community.
According to spokanehistorical.org, the land for the park was donated by Mr. and Mrs. E.A. Shadle in order to honor Mrs. Shadle's father, former Spokane Mayor J.M. Comstock. The Shadle's donated 21 acres and $150,000 for the project.
Now, the park features an updated aquatic center, playgrounds, and open spaces that continue to make it a place to enjoy summer days. For the ceremony, the official entrance to the park has been spruced up with a good power wash and new flower arrangements.
Following the rededication, the milestone will be celebrated with live music from Hot Club. The public is encouraged to join Mayor David Condon and the Spokane Parks and Recreation Department to celebrate this important Spokane landmark.
