Summer has begun in the Pacific Northwest! This means longer days, summers in Seattle are so beautiful; with the fresh air and sunshine you can’t help but want to spend all day outside. We put together our favorite parks in the city that we’ve enjoyed spending with our families and hope you and your family can explore and love too!
Carkeek Park 950 NW Carkeek Park Rd, Seattle, 98177
If you’re looking to spend some time at the beach, go on a hike, play at the park or slide through a huge salmon shaped slide Carkeek is it! The park also offers a large grass field with picnic tables and BBQ grills.
Rose Garden 750 N 50th St, Seattle, WA 98103
I rate the Rose Garden as one of the most beautiful places in the Seattle area in the summer. Allow yourself a little while to just stroll around and savor the wide diversity of roses and other plants that are displayed so well. There is no admission fee to the Rose Garden but there is a parking fee in the Zoo parking lots when the Zoo is open.
With a 2.8 mile loop path for wheels and feet; ample green spaces to play on; a full playground; basketball, tennis, and volleyball courts; an indoor gym; and a superb wading pool, Green Lake’s got it all!
Golden Gardens 8498 Seaview Pl NW, Seattle, 98117.
Golden Gardens park is nestled next to the beach. The park has an ultra-modern playground with a cool rope structure where kids can practice climbing skills, as well as wetlands that lets little ones get up close and personal with nature.
