Guess the title says it all...........well with this wonderful weather (!!) and no a/c, and having just moved here and NO friends - am trying to keep my kids busy til school starts - where are the good parks that have water features or great play areas?
We were at Crossroads today and to be honest it was overrun with kids from some local camps that were just brats and God knows where the counselors were, cause it sure as heck looked like they were there on their own. I actually marked down the names on their t-shirts as that is not a camp I'd want my kids to attend in the future - zero supervision and mucho opportunity for issues.
TIA!!

With no idea how old your children are I'm not sure what to suggest, but this recent thread probably has some ideas about happiness for children:

Grasslawn park in Redmond just totally remodeled their children's play areas. There is a new fountain installation, giant rocks to climb on, and a HUGE new playground. My two year old got soaked last time we were there, today will be a good day for that. Here is the site:

My kids always liked running through the fountains at Redmond Town Center.

You could play over at Anderson Park, or over at the farm at Ferrel McWhirter, then head over to run through the fountains and grab a snack at the town center.
