Kinnear Park, Queen Anne

Kinnear Park is on the SW slope of Queen Anne overlooking Elliott Bay and Puget Sound. Absolutely lovely.

Location: W Olympic Pl & 7th Ave W on Queen Anne
Number of swings: 1 regular, 1 baby bucket, 1 baby seat
Ground material: Wood chips
Chain length: Medium-long.

What lovely swings! They get going really quickly, seat high off the ground, and provide a nice slightly obstructed view of water. The seats are the slightly more comfortable version of other seats found in Seattle playgrounds.

This is the view from the viewpoint at the park. Hello, Seattle :)

How to get there: Bus route #1 stops right at the park along Olympic Pl.
