Nature has its own power and we harness that power and transform it into reliable energy. When ranked among the 100 largest power producers in the United States, Avista has one of the lowest rates of carbon dioxide emissions in the country. It is one of the ways we are helping build a sustainable future.

At the heart of Avista is the Spokane River. And at the heart of the Spokane River is Huntington Park. The park is named after David L. Huntington, Washington Water Power's 3rd president, from 1910 to 1927. Huntington led WWP during a time of unprecedented expansion. He is an example of Avista’s proud legacy of innovation and service.
Avista redeveloped this park to give residents and visitors a close-up look at the awesome power of this great river. Located on the south bank of the Spokane River, within the shadow of the original Washington Water Power Post St. substation and the spray zone of the Lower Falls, Huntington Park is a legacy to the city and leadership that made Avista what it is today.
