Commonwealth Lake Park

 

This park has a good playground, but that’s not all of it. At this lake your kids can fish, yes fish! You don’t need a permit. They stock the lake with fish year round. There’s also a lot of wildlife here. Blue Herons, nutrias, eagles, lots of geese and ducks. 

This park is also a great spot for safe biking and scooter rides.  

 

William Walker playground

 

This is hands down my son’s favorite playground in the area. You can only access it during the weekend since it’s in the school grounds. There are great climbing structures, swings, basketball courts and more!

You can work on a variety of ceramic creations at this spot. You and the kids will have fun painting and decorating ceramic pieces. The lovely staff will fire the pieces to get the paint to stick and they will give you a call when it’s ready for pick up.

This is a great option for after school fun. This cute art studio offers open studio sessions 3:30-5 PM for 5th graders and younger kids.

When you have super active kids you will need to get them moving as much as possible. This awesome trampoline park will make your kids sweat and help them sleep really well at night. Weekends get busy, so try to go earlier in the morning.

 

Conestoga Recreation Center

 

We are so lucky to have amazing recreation centers in Beaverton.

My absolute favorite is Conestoga. Their swimming pool is the best fun for kids. You can check their schedule for open swim times.

Your kids are guaranteed to have the best time at this arcade. Just load their card with credits ( $10 goes a long way here). They also have laser tag and a movie theater, so  you can make a whole day out of it.

 

Next Level Pinball Museum

 

At this awesome pinball arcade, you pay $20 for all you can play, all day passes. Older kids will have a blast here!
