Wow, you guys. This is probably the best thing to do with kids in the summer in Seattle.
Seattle has so many spray parks and wading pools. It’s a great way to beat the heat. And they are free. Check out their website for times and locations. There are also many in the surrounding areas which you can see via their parks websites.
Probably my favorite is Angle Lake Park, which is actually located in the SeaTac community. It has lots of picnic shelters, shade, and a huge spray park. The only downside can be finding a parking spot when it’s busy. Then again, this can be the same issue for many of the other spray parks. If you go early though, like a little before the spray park opens, it never seems to be an issue. Luckily, the light rail does come close, just within a 10-minute walk if you don’t want to deal with parking.
A few simple suggestions of things to bring:
- Water bottles
- Water diapers
- Water Shoes
- Beach tent/Sun shelter (many of the spray parks we have visited do not have shaded areas)
- And of course, snacks.
