During the spring and summer we are going to be highlighting a fun frugal family activity weekly. We will give some ideas of different parks, beaches, and community events that cost little or nothing.
Today, I want to highlight a park that is great for the whole family, dogs included. Willis Tucker park is in the Gold Creek neighborhood in south Everett. There is a fun playground with a merry go round, bouncy toys, climbing web and swings. In the summer it is a great place to cool off with the kids in the splashpad. I always make a day of going to Willis Tucker and bring our dog along. She loves to run in the offleash field or the hiking trail. There is also a senior dog area if you have an older of shy dog. There are also many trails and fun nature walks around the park that kids love.
