About The Friends of Manito

Joining TFM is your way to contribute to the activities, projects and events sponsored by The Friends of Manito.  

The Friends of Manito (TFM) is a non-profit 501 3(c) organization that supports Manito Park in Spokane, Washington by providing funds to improve the park experience.

The Friends of Manito contributed over $700,000 to Manito Park to fund over 60 projects.  These including the lower playground equipment, the Duncan Garden gazebo, the south Rose Garden pergolas, the upper park sprinkler system, the "Walk of Hope" sidewalk, and the lower Manito playground equipment.  Recent projects completed include the picnic shelter at the upper Manito playground, the south sidewalk, hosta gardens near the Park Bench, expansion of the Shoshone Entrance and waterfall walkway in the Nishinomiya-Tsutakawa Japanese Garden, the Tekeo terrace wall, and shoreline improvements to Mirror Pond.

Approximately 100 volunteers work from February to October to prepare and host these events. We love our volunteers and we thank them for making Manito Park a city jewel.
