SPOKANE, Wash. — A newly completed project means Manito Park is now a more environmentally-friendly place to visit.

Irrigation improvements along the east side of the park are reducing water use there by 30 percent.

The project also transformed an under-utilized section of the park with drought-tolerant plants. Plastic fencing is in place to allow these plantings to be established before opening to the public.
