Seattle-area playgrounds for pandemic season play

High Point, the neighborhood so named because it sits at Seattle's highest point (yes, higher than Queen Anne or Capitol Hill), features an awesome new playground that opened last year. Play on all the equipment, kick a soccer ball, practice cartwheels, get out the zoomies — this is a very fun spot.

Super-huge Discovery Park in Seattle's Magnolia neighborhood has a terrific, updated playground, tons of space and so much fun stuff to do with kids. You can truly play all day here. Count this one among regional destination parks.

At Georgetown Playfield's updated playground, you'll find many unique and cool play features. It's definitely worth checking out, especially for airplane fans. The park is situated right by Boeing Field and the planes fly in low and loud.

Newer Yesler Terrace Park playground sits perched on a hillside where Seattle's International District and Central District come together. A roller slide will entertain little kids and bigger kids will find a piece of cardboard and just slide down the turf — over and over. There's a spot to play soccer also, and for parents, an amazing view.

At popular Wallingford Playfield, they removed the rotting old wooden play structure and installed a fantastic fort that will have your kids sprinting from the car. It's got towers, bridges, slides and more.
