Montlake Playfield, Seattle

This super-adventurous park outside of the Montlake Community Center has some of the best climbing equipment around. Start on the challenge course where kids (and adults!) can balance on rope bridges and climb nets to reach a high pinnacle — and then exit through a long, tube slide. On the other structure, take a ladder up to the top of the spaceship for a view of this whole park, which includes tot play toys, adult exercise equipment, a waterfront wildlife viewing trail, basketball hoops and much more. 

Location: 1618 E. Calhoun St., Seattle. Parking is available in the free lot. Buses stop near the 520 bridge exit.
