Cowen Park, North Seattle

The Cowen Park swings are well known for being very long, allowing kids to reach an impressive height. In addition to the two regular swings and two baby swings, Cowen Park has a playground with slides, a merry-go-round and a zip line. Hiking trails that connect to adjacent Ravenna Park are a fun excursion for families with older kids.

Location: 5849 15th Ave. N.E. in North Seattle. Parking is available along the side streets. Buses stop next to the park.
