Families can play all day at some of our region’s biggest parks.
We like big parks — who doesn’t?
They say it’s about the journey, not the destination, but could someone please explain that to my kids when we have to drive two hours to a trailhead? To help keep the backseat peace, we often opt for a shorter commute to one of the Seattle area’s enormous parks.
These expansive greenspaces offer something for everyone: playgrounds, nature trails, beach access, intriguing built features or public art, gardens and so much more. Visiting these parks feels like heading into the wild, yet they’re close enough that, if needed, we can make it home by naptime.
