The Montlake Playfield is great. It's tucked away in this residential neighborhood. Mostly your playground competition will be non-school-age children in the daytime and maybe a few stray high schoolers at other times. This is a very nice playground in general. We used to trek to this park late at night back in the days of living in Mercer Hall at UW (4W4L!).
How to get there: Bus route #25 stops along 19th/W Montlake Pl.
