Othello Playground, South Seattle
A longtime favorite, the metal slide at Othello Playground is built into a steep grassy hillside. Climb the wooden stairs and then get ready for a fast ride to the bottom. Kids will want to take this ride again and again. This park also features a play area with a climbing structure, swings and a zip line. You’ll also find lots of space for games of Frisbee or soccer at this popular neighborhood park.
Location: 4351 S. Othello St. in South Seattle. Free street parking is available, and buses stop nearby. The Othello light rail station is located one block to the west.
