Bored at home? Try out a new park.
Bring a picnic lunch. Better yet, take a friend’s kid, so she can go get a pedicure (and swap the favor next week).
We recently tried Bayview-Kinnear Park (below Kerry Park) on Queen Anne hill in Seattle. The play gear was completely different from anything Szaba (or I) had seen before, and we had a ton of fun exploring. Plus, there are fantastic views and arguably one of the city’s best slides.
If you’re visiting Seattle, it’s just a short jaunt north of downtown. Hop a cab or a bus, and you’ll be there in about 10 minutes.
For more free Seattle fun, try one of these adventures:
- Golden Gardens
- Olympic Sculpture Park
- Green Lake
- Gasworks Park
- Ballard Splash Park
- Tulip Festival
- San Juan Islands
