Seward Park

Seward Park, a 300-acre forest park located at the southern end of Lake Washington in Rainier Valley, has enough to do to keep kids occupied for hours. The playground features a small climber for younger kids near the sandbox, in addition to a big treehouse-style structure for older kids that's partially covered. You'll also find swings and a popular zipline.

At the Seward Park Audubon Center, learn about Seward Park's wildlife. Hiking trails right behind the playground have good tree cover for rainy-day hikes.

Location: 5900 Lake Washington Blvd. S., Seattle. Free parking in the lot or on the streets nearby.

Warm up: You'll want to travel a couple of miles to the south for a legendary waffle at Drae's Lake Route Eatery.
