Farrel-McWhirter Farm Park, Redmond

Located just 10 minutes from Redmond Town Center, Farrel-McWhirter feels a world away. Enjoy birdsong as you walk through a forest of tall trees to reach the farm. There, kids can peep goats, pigs, chickens, horses, rabbits and Tom the cat. (Note that the barnyard is typically open 9 a.m.–4 p.m.) The best picnic area, with a shelter, tables and a wide lawn, is located between the farm and Mackey Creek (19545 N.E. Redmond Rd., Redmond).

Eats: Grab excellent banh mi sandwiches, which some consider Seattle's signature sandwich, at Yummy Pho Vietnamese Restaurant, about 10 minutes away (8920 161st Ave. N.E., Redmond).
