Woodland Park playground, North Seattle
Seattle's expansive Woodland Park includes a zoo, picnic areas, hiking trails, a skate bowl, playfields and more. Tucked in the northwest corner, north of the zoo, find a popular playground. Its 12-foot swings are some of the tallest in the city. Four regular swings and one baby swing are connected on one structure. The playground features a large treehouse-style attraction and a dome net climber. For younger siblings, there’s a mini version of the treehouse and more baby swings. The playground is a great place to visit before or after a trip to the zoo.
Location: Find this playground in the northwest corner of the sprawling Woodland Park complex. It's north of the Woodland Park Zoo at Phinney Avenue North and North 59th Street. Free parking is available on nearby residential streets. Paid parking is available in the adjacent Zoo parking lot and buses stop along Phinney Avenue North.
