TIME For Kids named Artists at Play at Seattle Center one of the world’s 50 coolest places of 2019.

Today, TIME For Kids reveals the first-ever list of the World’s 50 Coolest Places of 2019, spotlighting a mix of educational, innovative, and fun destinations that are tailored to the interests of kids, and Artists at Play is on the list.

This unique playground takes child-friendly fun to new heights with one of the largest Climbing Towers in North America. Created by Northwest artists Trimpin and Judith Caldwell in collaboration with landscape architects Site Workshop and play equipment provider Highwire, Artists at Play offers a hands-on/feet-on play experience immersed in sounds and reflective of its artful and imaginative surroundings.

To assemble the World’s Coolest Places, TIME for Kids gathered nominations from its network of TFK Kid Reporters and from young readers around the world. Each nomination was then evaluated on several factors, including quality, originality, sustainability, and accessibility.

The result: a list of 50 exciting, innovative, and iconic destinations around the world—from a Michelin-starred restaurant in Singapore with a gourmet kids’ menu to America’s tallest sand dunes, which are perfect for sledding.
