Newport Hills Woodlawn Park

A kid from Seattle, one from the Eastside and another from the South Sound want to get together for a playdate — what’s the optimal spot to meet in the middle? Easy! It’s the newly completed playground at Newport Hills Woodlawn Park. This last playground on our list is another in the “one of a kind” column, and we dig it. The play equipment here will really appeal to advanced climbers of elementary age. Little tots won’t be able to reach the highest heights, but there is a large disc swing, a slide nestled in among climbing rocks and a smaller cone spinner. For grown-ups to get moving, check out the adult exercise stations that feature a good view of the play area.

So what are we waiting for? Let’s go play.

Have you visited all of these fabulous playgrounds?
