Snohomish County Activities

Snohomish County is growing with families and has plenty of activities for families.



Coffee Shops


Farmer’s Markets

Babies and toddlers can learn so much at a farmers market, including colors and all their fruits and vegies. Snohomish County also has many u-pick farms for tots; their times and availability vary widely, so check out Puget Sound Fresh or search “farms” at ParentMap to stay up to date.

Hiking & Biking



Indoor Play


Parks & Playgrounds

Recreation Guides

Snohomish County and our cities have an amazing range of classes and programs for all ages – browse through the PDF guides, as online listings are not always complete. You can sign up for belly dancing, art or yoga for yourself or find a parent/baby class like Daddy & Me Soccer. Many cities will allow registrations if you don’t live there for a slightly higher fee. Keep an eye out for other cities with special classes, like Redmond’s clay art classes and horse camps, West Seattle’s Owl Walks or Edmonds Birding events.

Story Times

Story times at libraries are open to all, whether you have a library card or live in the neighborhood or not. Story time is a great free outing with babies. They will often include a short arts&crafts activity. Try different libraries for fun, or seek out story time in a second language you speak at home.


Summer or winter, babies love water! Check for parent/baby classes or swim/play schedules.


      • Alderwood Mall has a Mall Walker program. 7:30 a.m. At the food court entrance
      • The City of Mill Creek’s curving sidewalks make for beautiful walks with a carrier or stroller
      • McCollum Park has a short forest walk

Water Play

Other Fun Outings

    • The Nest classes and activities.
    • Stop in at the pet store and see the fish.
    • And keep an eye on local listings for concerts, movies, plays and other events in parks. These can be great for spreading a blanket and picnicking – where babies and toddlers are welcome and it’s easy to get up to calm a tantrum or a fussy baby.
