Ella Bailey Park is a kid friendly park that was opened in spring of 2007. The park was created on the territory of the former Magnolia Elementary School Playground.

Seattle Parks and Recreation together with the neighborhood and with the help of $1.4 million from the Pro Parks Levy renovated the park. 

Nowadays this park is considered to be a family park with amazing views of downtown of Seattle and Elliot Bay. 

This park features great play area for the children of different ages, well-maintained grass and walking paths and several picnic tables and benches.

The children’s play area is new and has opportunities for different activities, such as slides, swings, play sets and a single-hoop basketball court.

It should be said that the grass area is quite large, even enough for the picnic blankets.

In several words the park is fantastic for the kids and it offers the best views of Seattle skyline, the Space Needle, Mount Rainier, Alki Beach and the waters.

This park is considered to be one of the best places to enjoy the Fourth of July and New Year’s Eve fireworks.

It should be also mentioned that the park was named after a teacher who sold this land to the City of Seattle for $2,350.
