If you want a good walk or an easy stroll this is your park. You can stay above and walk around the historic grounds or get in some heavy breathing and walk down to the beach. The walk down isn't bad but coming back up... If you go at low tide you will see some interesting shoreline and be able... More

Nice walking park, not many areas for vehicles to access. Enjoyed the wartime buildings. Would be better if there were more historical signs, the area is so interesting. Trails were nice and well maintained. Beach was bright and beautiful.

I guess I was expecting something more or maybe i misunderstood this place completely. I found the signage to be poor, and you must walk about a mile from the visitor center to the beach if the shuttles aren't running, which seems to only be on the weekend. Seniors, families with children and those with mobility issues can get a... More

I loved this place. It was a nice hike and an easy level. There are wild blackberries and mulberries that you can pick and eat on your hike, nice for bird watching as well.

One of the best parts of the city is this beautiful park. Relax your mind, body, spirit with a long, luxurious stroll through this place and you will not forget it.

Take the time to find out how to reach Discovery Park by bus and you can have a wonderful day on the beach and/or hiking the many short trails that combine to make about 8 miles if you criss-cross the park. Information centre has maps and toilets but bring water and a picnic.

This is one of my favorite places to go and to enjoy a nice cigar while watching people with an awesome background view. It's also a safe place to walk and you can enjoy the sculptures while doing so.

Start at the Visitor Center to learn about the area. Nearby are tennis courts and a playground for the kids. Walk the trails, to the beach if you're ambitious. You won't believe you're only a few miles from downtown Seattle.

This rather extensive park is the perfect place to take a lovely walk of any duration or level of difficulty.

After you are through shopping and going to the Pike Place Market, visit the most beautiful part of Seattle--Discovery Park in the lovely Magnolia neighborhood. Drive or take a taxi--13 minutes from downtown via the Magnolia Bridge--to the South Entrance on West Emerson Street, then walk in, and immediately turn left onto a foot path which will take you in...
