Spotlight Thursday- Destination Worthy Seattle Area Playgrounds

Welcome to

I consider myself a bit of playground aficionado.  I get tired of the same old lot with a couple of swings and a slide.   If I feel this way, I imagine my children must as well, which is why I am always on the hunt for a new park to be discovered.  This same sentiment holds true for when we travel.  Parks are a great way to run out some extra energy after being in a car all day, wind down after a long day of exploring a city, or just catch a glimpse of some of the places that are held close in the hearts of local children.

Trekaroo member TravelMom has put together a great list of destination worthy playgrounds in the Greater Seattle/Pugent Sound area.  This list is a great resource for families visiting the region and locals who are looking to spice their playground time up a bit.  Just reading about the hill perfect for kite flying at Magnuson Park the salmon slide and faux tide pools at Carkeek Park,  and the working farm at Kelsey Creek Park in Bellevue is enough to make me want to hope on a plane and head to the Pacific Northwest.
