Be prepared to bring the kids in your life to this playground again and again! Seattle's biggest playground, the Junior League of Seattle Children's Playground is a huge hit with children of all ages.
Kids ages three to eight especially love to maneuver through the 20,000 square-feet of colorful climbing walls, sand box, swings, slides and much more.
The Junior League of Seattle donated and dedicated this "Air, Land and Sea" playground to the children of Seattle to commemorate the organization's 75 years of community service. The playground was designed partly by children and built entirely by volunteers at the site of the former Naval Air Station, Seattle Control Tower. The design of the playground includes several features which commemorate the site’s past use as an airfield. The N.E. to N.W. orientation of the central sidewalk is similar to that of the main runway (demolished in the mid-1970s’). It also includes markings at each end just like a real runway. A mosaic at the southwest corner of the playground includes compass points and nautical themes.
To get there, enter the park at N.E. 74th Street from Sand Point Way N.E. Drive straight ahead until you see a wide planted median. The playground is directly east (toward Lake Washington). Park close to the playground anywhere in the large lot.
Picnic Shelter No. 3 is adjacent to the playground as are the four variable height basketball courts. You'll also find nearby sports fields, walking trails and a dog off-leash area.
