Playgrounds

There are plenty of playgrounds within the Snohomish County system.  They range from a few minutes entertainment to an all-day adventure--guaranteed to have your kids dragging their heels when it's time to go.  We've rated them from 1 to 5 stars for "fun factor" and provided suggested ages, restroom availability, and when they were built. 

Important:  Suggested ages are for comparison purposes only.  Parents are responsible for supervising their children and assessing their child's ability to safely navigate all aspects of the play structures (prior to play).  Please, no unsupervised children over the age of 12.  

Note:  Playgrounds and structures are added/updated on a continuing basis.  Please bear with us if images and descriptions are not the most current.
