Big Day of Play 2017

Fitness areas are convenient and fun ways to do fitness in your neighborhood. This is the Powell Barnett area on Martin Luther King Way, one of several co-sponsored by Kaiser Permanente Washington.

The free fitness-and-fun place to be on August 19

Get set for another Big Day of Play. Kaiser Permanente is happy to co-sponsor this year’s event together with Seattle Parks and Recreation.
