You've reached the home of The Nat, a website devoted to Natatorium Park in Spokane, Washington.
For more than 75 years this park served the Spokane area, attracting crowds of up to 50,000 people and providing entertainment in the forms of indoor and outdoor swimming, semi-professional baseball, a beautifully kept outdoor park and picnic grounds, an amusement park, 4th of July fireworks and some of the biggest names in entertainment.
The park has been out of service since it closed for the season in 1967, but it lives on in our memories, and some parts of it live on in operating parks, private collections and now on the Web!
