Avista was recently recognized by the National Hydropower Association with an OSAW Award for being an Outstanding Steward of America's Waters. With a focus on recreational, environmental and historical enhancement, the award was for the renovation and revitalization of Avista’s Huntington Park in Spokane.

The Spokane Tribal Gathering Place, previously a parking lot, connects the newly transformed Huntington Park to the City of Spokane’s Riverfront Park, allowing the public access to the Spokane River Lower Falls for the first time in 100 years. Today, visitors can access the Lower Falls and along the way experience interpretive signs, sculptures, and artifacts that depict the area’s history, including Native American, European American and hydroelectric development.
