“oh, what a view”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 15, 2012

when I moved here in 1979, it was undiscovered and very rustic, quite a nice combination. It is perfect for running, as there is a beautiful trail which travels along the water. Great for families and picnics. It is a bit more built up now, but what isn't! A must go for tourists.

This park is amazing. Take the hike to the bluff on a clear, crisp day, and the views are gorgeous! A definite must see when in Seattle!

“Great park for those looking for hills, trails, and beaches”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2012

Love Discovery Park!! I got quite the workout walking up and down the hills and through the trails to get down to the beach and then back to the car. Seriously beautiful any time of the year but something magical about the spring/summer months. Bring a pack with essentials to enjoy your visit. Definitely pack water and some snacks because you will want to play on the beach. Be sure to go during low tide - amazing! Great picture opportunities!

“Spectacular views”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 1, 2012

This is a very special place, loved by Seattleites. The big park above the bluff and the paths throughout the park make it possible to be surrounded by other people while still having a marvelous sense of expanse and closeness to nature. And the views! On a clear day, there is almost no place better for enjoying the snow covered Olympic mountain range and the Puget Sound.

“Trails galore, history, forests to lighthouse”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 21, 2012

Great place to storm watch and collect drift wood and hike, walk or learn about an old fort.
