Seattle's Judkins Park offers just over six acres of sports facilities, picnic areas and a central walking trail. Best of all for the children of the area is the spray park that is opened from the end of May until the start of September. This is a fun area for you and your kids to cool off on hot summer's days.
Things to Do
