Best Rainy-Day Parks and Playgrounds Around Seattle and Beyond

Seahurst Park

Seahurst Park

Burien’s jewel of a waterfront park, Seahurst Park, is officially called Seahurst Ed Munro Park. Here you’ll find nearly a mile of restored saltwater shoreline to explore, along with trails and a playground. Time your visit with low tide to explore tide pools. Or take the South Shoreline Trail on a rainy day for a puddle-filled hike under tree cover. Covered picnic shelters located close to the beach offer a perfect vantage for watching storms roll in.

Location: 1600 S.W. Seahurst Drive, Burien. Free parking is available in the parking lot. Buses stop on Ambaum Boulevard Southwest, about a mile outside the park.

Warm up: Located a couple of miles from the park, 909 Coffee and Wine is your spot for a delicious late-afternoon snack or early dinner. Grand Central Bakery, also in Burien’s hip downtown, offers very tasty sandwiches and baked goods.

Next stop: Lake Meridian
