From City of Everett, WA Website:
This 197-acre wooded park is Everett's oldest and largest park. It is home to the Parks and Recreation Department administration offices, recreation office, Swim Center, playground, picnic shelter, wooded trails and Animal Farm. The Rotary Centennial Water Playground opened at Forest Park in July 2007.
Rotary Centennial Water Playground re-opens May 23, 2009!
The playground has 16 interactive water features including a replica of a blue whale tail. A second smaller water area is designed for use by toddlers. The water playground area has benches, picnic tables and a raised planter featuring a cherub statue from Forest Park’s original wading pool that was closed several years ago. The water playground was paid for in part with a donation from the Rotary Club of Everett.

My 3 year old LOVES the animal farm at this park! You can pet all the goats, lambs, cows, horses, and other animals and it's free! There's also a really awesome water play area, so you can have several hours of fun there and do a variety of activities with your kids. I highly recommend this park for all ages!
Tip: Bring your camera! You don't want to miss cute shots of your kids petting the animals!
This park is nice because it is a park, water park and petting zoo. There is also an indoor pool.
Unfortunately, I saw a toddler fall of the equipment from about four feet up and hit his head on a bar on the way down! This happened with adults standing right there, they just couldn't react quick enough. (This was the smaller of the two play structures.) I prefer play structures that are totally enclosed.
