The city at your feet
Dr. Jose Rizal Park, Seattle
Perched on the northwest corner of Beacon Hill, this park boasts a sweeping view overlooking Elliott Bay and downtown Seattle. Long before this spot became a park, the hillside was a favorite picnic destination for Filipino families living in the neighborhood. It’s named after Jose Rizal, a brilliant writer, scientist and a hero in the Philippines’ struggle for independence. The park also has a playground, an off-leash area for dogs and walking trails (1007 12th Ave. S., Seattle).
Eats: Order some delicious takeout at the wonderful Vietnamese restaurant The Tamarind Tree (1036 S. Jackson St., Seattle), or wander around the International District and pop into some kid-friendly eateries recommended by a local mom in the know.
