Cliff Cannon has a true sense of place. It is Spokane’s 2nd oldest neighborhood. Established, beginning with the platting of Cannon’s Addition in 1883, the neighborhood climbs up the west end of the South Hill from I-90 and Spokane’s lively downtown core.

We live in a walkable, tree lined urban street grid. Our urban tree canopy keeps the air cleaner and the summer heat lower. Affordable and charming, the streets are lined with historic homes from Queen Anne to Mid-Century-Modern architectural styles. We are home to four parks, small business centers, a medical district with two major hospitals, and many specialty medical facilities including a Shriners Children’s Hospital and a Ronald McDonald House. Our densely populated neighborhood is filled with wonderfully diverse, fascinating people of mixed income levels enjoying an urban lifestyles.

It is an active and engaged neighborhood because we love living here. We encourage you to consider Cliff-Cannon Neighborhood as place to make your home too.  We have four beautiful public parks. Our neighborhood is walkable and convenient to downtown.

Plymouth Congregational Church at 8th and Walnut.  Built as a synagogue.  Just one of hundreds of historic buildings in the neighborhood. We are home to the largest local historic district in Spokane, The Cannon Streetcar Suburb Historic District, plus the large 9th Ave National Historic District and some smaller districts too.
Cowley Park, located due south of Providence Sacred Heart Children’s Hospital was the first property in Spokane County listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
Potluck Picnic Meeting in June at Polly Judd Park picnic shelter. The shelter was a CCNC community project. Many of the improvements at this park were paid for with Community Development Block Grant funds provided to Historic Cannon’s Addition CDBG Steering Committee between 1992 and 2012 [these CDBG committees were cancelled by the City of Spokane after 2012]. The picnic shelter was built as a community project by neighborhood activists wishing to create gathering spot in west Cliff Cannon Neighborhood.
NOTICE the Block Party is currently cancelled as we no longer have the necessary volunteers stepping up to put on the party [need 25 people]. It was very popular, attracting over 2000 participants in its 15th year, September 2022. Live music, free food, community group booths, meet politicians and first responders, and children’s activities were featured fun at the family friendly block party. This was out National Night Out against Crime party. CCNC was unusual for holding there party in September [to avoid smoke season we hoped, and the extreme heat of August night out parties].
