Children on swings in Lincoln Park, Seattle, ca. 1911
In the early days of the 20th century, Seattle's park department started developing playgrounds. This was part of a national trend to provide special play spaces for younger and older children. Sometime around 1907, the city installed swings, ladders, hanging rings, and climbing poles at Lincoln Park. This park, on Capitol Hill, was very popular with neighborhood families.
