As others have commented, this is a nice park with a variety of hiking and walking options. However, be very careful with leaving anything in your car while hiking/walking. Our car was broken into (window smashed) and things were stolen while we were on our hike. I didn't see any other cars with damage that particular day, but there was... More

This is a terrific oasis near the heart of Seattle; we stayed near Lake Washington and had easy access to the Discovery park for a day of exploring in the woods and along the seashore. Terrific pathways, whether you prefer paved or wooded this park has miles of them! Sitting along the beach near the lighthouse is a wonderful place... More

We loved walking along the beach and to the lighthouse. We were able to admire a bald eagle perched up on the wire. Wonderful views!

so glad we were able to visit this amazing park with its incredible views of the water, islands and mountains. Understand it is especially beautiful in summer with all the wild flowers.

I was cycling through the area a week ago and thought I'd drop by Discovery Park. I'm a tourist and there wasn't a single sign warning 'no bicycles' at the gate I entered. Having cycled around for 30 minutes, a female staff member started shouting and behaving aggressively towards me, telling me it was 'no bicycles'. I explained there were... More

This is a great place to take a walk for a couple of hours. The directional signs are a bit confusing so I wandered just a bit before identifying the loop. Be sure to drop down to the beach if you are okay with hills and steps. The visitor Center isn't much - more for kids activities and a clean... More

I had read about Discovery Park so while visiting Seattle we decided to go check it out. Very pretty drive into the park. Wooded long drive. The park itself has beautiful views and a cool old lighthouse. It is worth a drive out to see. Nice place to park and hike around also.

We went to Discovery Park on our second to last day in the Seattle area and were very happy that we did. The park is located not far from Downtown Seattle, but once you get on the trail you feel like your are " in the woods" and the ocean views are awesome. The hike to the light house was... More

Hike through a variety of settings. Easy trail, not challenging and well marked but can be 3 to 5 miles. Extremely scenic
