Seattle has more than 400 parks, spread across more than 6,200 acres land, but just a handful of them get regular recognition. Cal Anderson Park is a busy weekend sunning spot, for example, and Discovery Park is full of hikers (and really hard to miss). But so many other parks are out there waiting to be explored.
Seattle is filled with the undiscovered, or only slightly-discovered, and the nice weather is beckoning to you to find them for yourself. Maybe one is already your go-to park, in which case: Sorry for letting word get out.
We've mapped out 15 tiny or hidden parks that often fly under the radar, ordered from north to south. Some of them are beaches, others offer amazing views. All of them are worth the trip.
Gotta stick close to downtown? We’ve got that covered.
