Back in November Julian and I went to the Webster Park Playground which is near our rental house in Ballard. It’s right next door to the old Webster school1. I loved the bright colors of the playground equipment.
This playground looks primarily designed for ages 5-122. There wasn’t a playground structure designed for 2-5 year-olds. However, they did have swings for both young and older kids. In addition, there was a sandbox with some community toys!
Julian particularly loved climbing on the net rope strung between two large climbing boulders.
The playground is “interactive”. I didn’t try it, but there’s an app you can download from Biba to use with the playground.
The park also has a basketball court, grass lawn, and a sundial.
