Summer Recreation in Evergreen

Now that schools are out on summer break, kids will be around the house with a lot more free time on their hands. One of the best tricks to keep summer boredom from setting in is to find ways to get them playing outside (with the added bonus of keeping them off their devices). We are fortunate to live in the Evergreen area and have access to picturesque playgrounds and parks that are close to home and offer Evergreen hiking and mountain biking. From swings to slides, to climbing walls --  and water features too, our parks and playgrounds keep families active, are a great place to meet old friends (and make new ones!), and best of all, it's FREE summer recreation in Evergreen!

As summer rolls around, families start seeking the “best of the best” in local playgrounds for family recreation. Here are some top picks for the Evergreen area.
