Me and my brother lived near Nat Park in 1961 and loved the Carrosel.

I watched a special last night on channel 7 (PBS) about NAT. It was very interesting. I had not heard of NAT prior to watching this and wish more people knew about it and had interest in possibly restoring some of it. Thank you for this website and it's content! History is an important part of our local community and why we are what we are...

Thank you for this wonderful website. I am very moved by all that I've learned about this part of my heritage and so very grateful for the preservation of the carousel.

Man, do I remember this place. Back in the early sixties I used to go there with my cousin Denny (he had a car). I loved the rockets. There is a picture in the gallery that sure looks like us...probably not, but it sure brought back the memories. Thanks!

Loved Nat Park, Great Memories! From 1920's as a child with my family, also 1950's 1960's with children (grandchildren). especially Looff carrousel, (the Rabbit) Roller Coaster and train. Would love to see Natatorium Park return to greatness for furture generations!

I remember as a child going to "Nat" park. The overhead music sound system was great. I remember listening to Sarah Vaughn's "Broken Hearted Melody," and "Do You Wanna Dance," by Major Lance just to mention a few.

The rides were great! I felt safe and a respected part of the Spokane community. I wish that spirit of calm and peace were still with us.

Thank you for a great website about Nat Park! I grew up in the area and spent many days there with friends. We would ride our bikes down the hill to the park like speed demons. The Jack Rabbit, Bumper Cars, and Custer Cars were my favorite rides. They don't make corn dogs like that anymore. I tell my girls about the Nat all the time.

I visted Natatorium as a little boy in Spokane in the 40's and 50's. Rode the jack rabbit many times.This brings back memories

Remember many trips to Nat Park. All the rides, the zoo, the miniature train I rode on. Also have autograph from Sky King and Captain Cy, who were both there on the same day. Have old 8mm home movies of the train ride and the zoo area.

Just a great site which brought back some long lost memories of weekends with my parents and silings at Nat. It was such fun and so close to home. I went to Lidgerwood grade school in Spokane. Thanks you for sharing this history. These days, unfortunately, are long gone. I am just grateful I was born when I was.
