Well, it’s going to be nice this week and likely into the weekend as well. And while we’re all still supposed to be staying at home we know some of you will want to get out and about. So we’re going to talk about some of the city’s best parks for getting out and about. Here are 5 of Seattle’s best city parks.

Volunteer Park

You’ve probably heard of this Capitol Hill gem which is pretty roomy and it was designed by the Olmstead brothers. So if you live in Capitol Hill and need to get out for a walk, Volunteer Park is an excellent choice. But if you do decide to go, remember to bring your mask and stay 6 feet apart from other park visitors.

Fremont Canal Park

This might be one that you’ve never heard of or you may have just never realized it’s a park. The Fremont Canal Park is a stretch of grass that overlooks the Fremont Canal and is a great place for a quick sit. So if you live in Fremont be sure to stroll on by or bike on by if you’re using the Burke Gilman trail.

Golden Gardens

You probably already guessed that this would be on the list. And Golden Gardens holds a special place in a lot of people’s hearts, including ours. So if you live in the Ballard area and need some beach time, this is a great option. But just a fair warning, it will probably be packed so you’re really going to want to bring a mask.

Discovery Park

Disco as it is affectionately called is probably our favorite park on the list. And it’s one of the few parks in Seattle where you can actually kinda do a day hike. So with that in mind, this park is huge which makes it ideal for social distancing. However, that being said, this park is popular so we can guarantee it’ll be packed. So as we’ve said previously, you’ll wanna be wearing a mask.

The Arboretum

And last but definitely not least, The Arboretum is a great choice for enjoying the gifts of spring. Here you can expect to see tons of flowers, birds and also other people. So we would keep it moving in this park and of course, bring a mask.

So it should go without saying but if you feel sick, do not leave your house. And on top of that, don’t drive across the city to visit a park, keep it in your own neighborhood. So with all that in mind, we hope you enjoy our little list of some of Seattle’s best city parks. And if you get outside, be safe and respectful with those around you.
