Welcome to Comstock
A family-friendly suburb in a charming and private setting
This quiet, safe, family-friendly neighborhood is centered around the historic Comstock Park with rolling greenspace, a number of play facilities, and the only outdoor public pool on the Hill.
Spokane's Comstock neighborhood is located in the South Hill area. Spokane is home to a number of beneficent works, one of which is Comstock Park in the center of Comstock. During the 1930s, local park design had shifted focus from a place for reflection to a place geared for recreation. Comstock Park embodies both. During the park's creation, prominent community members Mr. and Mrs. E. A. Shadle donated 21 acres and a large sum of money commemorating Mrs. Shadle's father and former mayor of Spokane, J. Merritt Comstock.
Those who live in Comstock can attest to the natural beauty of the neighborhood. In addition to the lush foliage lining the streets, residents can also enjoy verdant spaces throughout the community. A scenic hike or car ride on High Drive reveals a spectacular view of native trees and lush vegetation. A nature lover’s dream, Comstock is an ideal place for outdoor recreation.
Today, Comstock Park is still at the center of its neighborhood. The neighborhood itself is a quaint intermingling of various home architectural styles. Popular styles are Craftsman and Mid-Century Ranch homes. However, one can also see grand mansions, modern split-level homes, and luxury apartments.
