My wife and 13 year-old son visited Discovery Park for the first time on a sunny Sunday morning. The park is huge, with lots of well marked trails. We hiked from the North parking lot down to the lighthouse at the edge of the water and walk wasn't too strenuous (lots of young kids were hiking the same trail). The... More

Hiked here on a beautiful, warm, sunny day in Seattle. Park is too large to cover in a day. You can hike to beaches with stunning views of water, mountain, & city. We also found a light house dating back to the 1800s. Gorgeous forested paths. If you like the outdoors & like to hike or walk, you can't go... More

This park is huge! You can spend the whole day walking around and still now cover all of it. I was able to see a Bald Eagle sitting in a tree while walking! Great for friends family or alone!

This is a city-owned park located on the north side of town, and quite a ride to get there, but well worth your efforts. There is a very nice Welcome Center with some educational exhibits, and restrooms, and they distribute maps of numerous walking trails within the park. Three items I found of great interest - being able to walk... More

You can belong to Seattle in this park...It includes you with plenty of space and options to roam and be in the trees or in the sand above the cliffs overlooking the sound.

This park is a favorite for a trail run, a family hike, or a trip to the beach. I love that if I only have an hour in the middle of my day I can still get a great workout, be surrounded by trees, and get epic views of the Puget Sound and the Olympic mountains.

Variety of different settings, from grassland to forest to shoreline. It's a large, pleasant place for a day hike, and really nice place to spend a sunny day!
