With six aquatic centers scattered across town, Spokane Parks and Recreation champions summertime fun with well-equipped hydro-havens. With an adult (18 years old or older) or youth (3–17 years old) pass, swimmers can take advantage of unlimited recreational pool access. Most of the aquatic centers boast zero-depth entry for toddlers to safely wet their feet, as well as waterslides, separate lap pools, and the entire cast from Law and Order: Pacific Ocean Unit as lifeguards. Accompanying the maritime merriment, each facility also includes a large deck for lounging outside of the pool as well as adjacent parks and shaded areas for hiding from falling sunbeams.

Founder Jennifer Miley designed The Calm as a wine bar that embodies its name—a place where women can unwind, socialize, and enjoy a glass of merlot. Women can stop by for a quick drink after work, or sign up for a membership and enjoy perks such as complimentary drinks, soothing massages, and community events featuring actresses, authors, and broadcasters.
Spokane Yoga Shala devotes its dynamic classes to Ashtanga Vinyasa yoga, which coordinates fluid sequences of postures with breathing, aligning the body along its central axis while strengthening the core. Novice students can master proper breathing techniques, improve focus, and scratch those hard-to-reach parts of the back with their feet during beginner classes such as Yoga 101, which introduces basic Ashtanga postures. The Restorative Vinyasa class harnesses the powers of gravity, deep breathing, and formal Victorian etiquette. More seasoned sun-saluters can hone postures as well as pruning shears during a Primary Series (level 3) exploration of the full range of Ashtanga postures, or Power Yoga (level 2), which juxtaposes heat and cool to leave bodies feeling more refreshed than a howler monkey after a throat massage.
Wild Walls Indoor Climbing Gym sprawls across 6,000 square feet of a historic armory building, challenging gravity-bound bodies with various climbing and bouldering structures. “People have the misconception that rock climbing is like an amusement ride,” says Todd, the general manager. Wild Walls lures exercisers from dull workouts, such as watching paint dry on dumbbells, by offering challenging routes, tricky angles, and a wide variety of top-rope and sport-lead routes. Indoor adventurers can vary sweat sessions with yoga classes.
Wild Walls also stocks portable walls that soar to 16 and 24 feet, ideal for birthday celebrants or bosses who need a way to determine which employee gets a raise. For more permanent climbing surfaces, its staffers can install traverse walls, which run horizontally, in locations such as school gyms or underground monkey-training facilities.
Pinot's Palette is less an art studio than it is a way for people to enjoy a libation-filled night out with friends, one that happens to include a painting project. The painting sessions evoke adults' inner artists whether they have any painting experience or not, encouraging conversation and good cheer while painting and sipping. Some locations feature a BYOB policy while others serve beer and wine from the bar. Each session features a predetermined painting?from flowers and animals to known classics such as Van Gogh's Starry Night?which each participant tackles from their own artistic angle under the guidance of an experienced instructor.
