It's easy to think of enjoying a day out in Seattle parks, sticking to one of the heavy-hitters like the Arboretum, Volunteer Park, Discovery Park, Seward Park or Carkeek Park, having a picnic, and calling it a day. But did you know Seattle Parks and Recreation maintains over 400 parks and open areas around the city?
