This park is the largest park in the City of Seattle, 500 + acres. We love to come here to hike down to the Lighthouse, and trek back up to see the humungous trees.

Beautiful park with well taken care of trails. The views of the Puget Sound were beautiful and lots of interesting aircraft flying overhead.

Discovery is a large and beautiful overlooking the Puget Sound. It contains ample scenic trails. In places they run along a high cliff near the water.

The views are beautiful and we had a wonderful day at Discovery Park, but better directions would have been appreciated! We went to the visitor's center and they offered us a map, but we found it difficult to read, and ended up on a path that was extremely steep. The hike was worth it though for some of those views!

Whether you need deep forest chill time or the beach this is a great park to visit. Vast and full of a variety of situations, perfect for a long walk adventure and fun even a couple play areas for small kids.

Be sure to being comfortable shoes to hike in. It is a good 2 mile hike each way to access the beach, but the hike is great and my 9 year old and 5 year old did it with minimal complaints. Getting to the beach area and to the lighthouse was worth it. It is quite a ways out of... More

New Years Day 2016 and this place was busier than the Down Town Markets. But it is a great place to walk and to wander along the beach at the lighthouse on a clear winter day was extra special. A bonus was the Bald Eagle watching us from his high perch which rounded out the day. The buildings which were... More

We have been to this park countless time, and love it every time. There are many types of trails, short one, long ones, sunny by the shore, shady in the woods - you name it. You can have picnic at the meadow, and enjoy break taking Sound view at the bluff, and sunset by the shore. What's not to love... More
