The Park Less Traveled: 7 Seattle Parks to Discover This Summer – ParentMap.

Seattle is blessed with an incredible bounty of city parks, ranging from near wilderness to little pocket parks. But even with such a fantastic selection, it’s easy to fall into a rut and go to the same old places.

Does Parental Park Malaise set in while watching your kids slide down the salmon over and over again at Carkeek Park or negotiating toddler access rights to the canoe at Green Lake?
