Fun at Preston Athletic Fields and Park: A Family-Friendly Destination

Welcome to a local gem tucked just off the bustling I-90, a serene getaway that promises adventure and relaxation for families: The Fields at Preston Park. Nestled within Issaquah’s vibrant landscapes, this park is a mere 10-minute drive from the 405, making it an easily accessible spot for a day filled with joy, laughter, and sports.

A Playground Paradise

Preston Athletic Fields & Park is a haven for children and adults alike, boasting amenities that cater to every age and interest. From the adrenaline-pumping soccer fields to the inviting picnic shelters, this park has something for everyone. The playground is divided into two main areas to cater to different age groups:

For the Older Kids: A dynamic play structure awaits, complete with slides, climbing features, a rolling log, and spinners. It’s the perfect spot for those seeking a bit of adventure and challenge.

For the Little Ones: A more age-appropriate play area is available, featuring a smaller slide designed for safer play. This ensures that even the youngest visitors can enjoy their time at the park in a secure environment.

Home of the Eastside FC

Preston Park proudly serves as the home ground for all of Eastside FC’s outdoor training and matches. With two full-size fields, a 9-a-side field, and two 7-a-side fields, the park is well-equipped to host a variety of soccer games. Whether you play soccer, have siblings that do, or simply enjoy watching the sport, Preston Park is the place to be for all soccer enthusiasts on the Eastside.

Not Just for Sports

While the athletic fields are a major draw, the park’s appeal extends beyond sports. Positioned right off the freeway, it offers quick and easy access and boasts a large parking lot, making it a hassle-free destination for families. Although the proximity to the freeway means that freeway noise can be a presence, the excitement of the park’s offerings far outweighs this minor inconvenience.

The recent addition of new turf in 2018 has significantly enhanced the quality of the fields, ensuring a top-notch experience for all athletes and visitors. And let’s not forget the culinary delights awaiting nearby:

Rhodies Smokin BBQ: A stone’s throw from the playground, this BBQ spot is a favorite among locals and visitors. Whether you’re craving their mouth-watering pulled pork sandwiches or the perfectly seasoned chicken quarters for the kids (sauce on the side, of course), Rhodies is a must-visit for any park-goer.

Nearby Conveniences: With a Subway and a General Store just next door, you have quick access to refreshments and essentials, making your day out in the park as comfortable as it is enjoyable.

Final Thoughts

Preston Athletic Fields & Park is more than just a sports complex; it’s a community hub where families can spend quality time together, children can explore and play in a safe environment, and sports enthusiasts can enjoy the thrill of the game. Whether you’re here for the soccer, the playgrounds, or simply to enjoy a picnic under the sky, Preston Park offers a slice of tranquility and excitement for everyone.

So, pack your picnic basket, grab your soccer ball, and head down to Preston Park for a day of unforgettable family fun. And remember, a visit to Rhodies Smokin BBQ is the perfect way to cap off a perfect day at the park. See you at The Fields at Preston Park!
