Great Place to Live
Deer Park is a small town with a big back yard! If you enjoy the look and feel of small town America, you’ll find Deer Park to your liking. We’re close enough to the “big city” to take advantage of Spokane’s numerous amenities yet far enough away to enjoy the peace and quiet of country living.
