North Bend

If you’re stopping for a quick bite to eat in North Bend, WA, you’ll quickly lament the lack of play lands at any of the fast food offerings. But a quick inquiry of the drive thru staff at Taco Time led us to E.J. Roberts Park. Only a few minutes into town (and it’s a lovely town!), EJ Roberts is a beautiful little respite from a long roadtrip. Located in a quiet residential area, the park is medium-sized, with a shaded play area, lots of grass to throw a ball around, and picnic tables, all with a stunning mountain backdrop.

Toby, engage in horseplay? Noooo....

Distance off the interstate: Three minutes off I-90.

Bathrooms: They were not very clean, but frankly, we were just glad they were there!
