Webster Park, which sits on the grounds of the Nordic Heritage Museum (which was once Webster Elementary School), is small in appearance, but mighty in entertainment value. It’s the best neighborhood park you’ve never heard of, with lots of options for fun in a well-designed space.
There are two sets of swings, plenty of toys for both toddlers and big kids. The blacktop area for full and half-court basketball games is also the perfect size for learning how to ride a bike without training wheels. The grassy space next to the play area is perfect for picnics and adequate for small-scale lawn games.
Because of the park’s compact design, it’s easy to keep track of your kids while they explore the different options for play. Even a lightly wooded area to the back of the playground is sparse enough so that you can still keep an eye on your little ones while they enjoy a little unstructured play.
The park’s 15th anniversary celebration will take place on Saturday, June 9 from, 1-4 PM. Be there by 1:15 to catch a performance by the Ballard Sedentary Sousa band. There will also be games with prizes for the kids and, of course, birthday cake!
