Seattle Children’s PlayGarden

The completely marvelous Seattle Children's PlayGarden is back open for play. It's open 3 p.m. to dusk on weekdays, and from dawn to dusk on weekends. The fully accessible, securely fenced playground underwent a complete overhaul in 2018 and the results are magical. The PlayGarden engages kids with autism, cerebral palsy, hearing impairments and other disabilities in ways a typical playground falls short. Kids can pick and taste ripe berries in season, dig in the dirt, climb on a garden truck, tumble on an expansive foam play area, make melodies at the musical sculpture and much more.

Find it: 1745 24th Ave. S., Seattle
