Your Seattle Parks Summer Bucket List

Remember when you were a kid and summer meant three months of sleeping in and not knowing which day it was? Blissful. But now youre older, and people send you meeting requests in July and schedule appointments in August. Youre expected to show up to work even when its 80 degrees and sunny. The audacity.

At Seattle Parks and Recreation, we believe that no matter what your age, you deserve to have some summertime fun. Weve put together a Summer Bucket List that has something for everyone. So get out your day planner, and scribble some of these events in. Theyre sure to turn a ho-hum week into a hopping good time.
