12 Amazing Playgrounds for Eastside Kids and Families

Surrey Downs, Bellevue

Bellevue’s newer Surrey Downs Park has destination playground features to keep you coming back. There’s a large play structure offering some thrills for older kids, and an accompanying scaled-down version for toddlers. A paved path circles a big grassy lawn, perfect for Wiffle Ball and soccer and laps on a bike. There’s a long zip line, a set of swings (including a double-seater) and a basketball court. Bonus for caregivers: There’s a gorgeous view of Mount Rainier to enjoy.
