The western gateway to North Idaho is an easy exit off I-90. Post Falls is known as Idaho’s River City. Forested hills to the south, winding Spokane River in the heart of town and prairie stretching north to the mountains provide a beautiful setting for this progressive town. Q’emiln Riverside Park, south of I-90 off Spokane Street, has picnic areas, a public boat launch and beach with life guards in summer months. Behind the park is some of the region’s best rock climbing, long scenic hiking trails and popular white water kayak training locations.
Within the city limits of Post Falls, see Native American petroglyphs and pictographs at Treaty Rock or visit Falls Park, site of the Post Falls Dam which controls the water levels of Lake Coeur d’Alene.
The city is 25 minutes from downtown Spokane, 35 minutes from Spokane International Airport and 10 minutes from downtown Coeur d’Alene. This central location has made Post Falls a plus for corporate relocation. Buck Knives, the premium manufacturer of hunting and fishing knives, calls Post Falls home. They were joined by a Cabela’s outdoor mega store in 2007. A new 30,000 square foot city hall campus opened in 2008 and a new Post Falls Chamber of Commerce building opened in 2010.
