Shoreview Park, Shoreline
Part of a huge greenspace that is actually two adjacent parks making up 88 acres, the Shoreview Park playground sits near the playfields, within easy wheelchair- and stroller-accessible reach of the parking lot. Two colorful climbing structures are bursting with slides — eight by my count.
Gutsy kids can climb to the top of the larger play tower that has two tube slides that drop two stories. The smaller structure is just as fun for little tykes. The park also has kid-friendly hiking trails, an off-leash dog park, tennis courts and a second playground (more slides!) near the baseball field.
Location: 700 N.W. Innis Arden Way in Shoreline. Free parking is available in the lot near the playground. Buses stop near adjacent Shoreline Community College, 0.7 miles away.
