Welcome to South Perry District
The hip South Perry District is a lively residential area with a row of businesses on Perry Street from about 8th to 11th Avenue. This neighborhood is conveniently located close to downtown, University, and Medical Districts. Unique shops, tap houses, and restaurants anchor this historic neighborhood.
Tree-lined streets are the norm with a range of house styles from charming bungalows to inviting craftsman architecture. This unique neighborhood continues to appreciate in value and draw in buyers who invest in property improvements.
South Perry District is anchored by Grant Elementary, adjacent to Grant Park. The school serves 370 students in grades K-6 with a student-to-teacher ratio of 12 to 1. New middle schools are being built to accommodate the addition of 6th graders.
Sacajawea Middle School serves grades 7 and 8. A new building is slated to be constructed providing additional space for 6th graders in with-in the school boundaries. The school continues to provide quality education and prepare students for success.
High school residents of South Perry District feed into Lewis and Clark High School, arguably one of the best high schools in Spokane District 81. This urban high school is located in downtown Spokane and serves over 1800 students in grades 9-12.
PARKS AND COMMUNITY
Grant Park, located on Arthur and 11th, was established in 1908 and is just over 12 acres. There is a playground, tennis courts, and a community garden. The garden is all organic and the South Perry Business and Neighborhood Association (SPBNA) provides all the tools. There are 44 garden beds that are rented out for the season (April to October).
In the spring, summer and fall, be sure to stop by for the Thursday Market on Perry Street. It features local artisans, food vendors, and farmers. The market runs from 3-7pm May through October.
South Perry District isn’t all about food (although it’s definitely a highlight). An original ice cream shop featuring a windmill is now home to Lorien Herbs and Natural Foods. Browse clothing and jewelry, designed by the owner, at Veda Lux Boutique. Title 9 sits on the corner across from Perry Street Brewing and offers outdoorsy items from yoga pants to swim suits.
Pop over to Perry Street Brewing after work for a frosty pint. The hazy IPAs are refreshing, and before you order the second beer, order some food. The rotating tacos are a perfect bite of flavor.
Not to be overlooked is The Grain Shed – a unique mix of bakery and brewery. The ciabatta and cinnamon buns garner rave reviews!
