Jefferson Park, #Seattle - Saturday Snapshot

When my son asked if I'd like to spend a morning with him and my 5-year-old granddaughter at Jefferson Park, I jumped at the chance. My granddaughter has been raving about this park, so I couldn't wait to see it. It's a terrific facility, and we all had a fun time. (Click on photos to enlarge.)
This is just a portion of the playground
This huge park has something for everyone: basketball court, lawn bowling, skate park, tennis courts, spray park, soccer fields, baseball fields, golf driving range, ziplines, an indoor recreation center, walking paths, and more.

Not many kids at the spray park
on this cool morning
But then the sun came out and so did the children
We didn't bring a swimsuit but that
didn't matter. Thank heavens for
waterproof shoes!
Nice view of downtown Seattle to the north, too.
By the way, that red sculpture in the background is not only decorative, it can also be skated on by skateboarders! We didn't see any when we were there or I would have taken pictures.

PS: I'm curious. Can you zoom in and zoom out on this map?

  1. That Spray Park seems like a great place for young kids- and yes, you can zoom in and out of the map.
    Thanks for sharing, and have a good weekend!

  2. This looks like great fun! A far cry form the parks of my youth where the teeter totter was the rage:)

  3. I zoomed in and out of the map. I hope to visit Seattle some day.

  4. Wonderful park, and yes, the map zooms in and out. Great fun, and I love Seattle, although there is much I haven't yet seen, like this park. Thanks for sharing, and here's MY SATURDAY SNAPSHOT POST

  5. Thanks for the feedback on the map. I've wondered if I was the only one who could do the "zoom" thing since I was the one who posted it! It's good to know that it works.

  6. That looks like a fabulous park and I'm sure the Spray Ground is very popular on these hot days!

  7. Sounds as if you had a wonderful time! Great. And interestisng. Loved the descsription and photos.


  8. What a lovely park--it looks very clean and safety-minded for the children. No wonder your granddaughter likes it!

  9. I might be an adult, but the slides on the playground sure look like fun. ;-) My husband and I have talked about doing zip lines during one of our vacation. The lawn bowling also intrigues me. Like you said, this park sure seems to have something for everyone.

  10. Wow, what a unique park! My kids would have loved that when they were little. Looks like your granddaughter had a great time!
