Discovery Park

We’ve written about the Daybreak Star Cultural Center located on the grounds of Discovery Park in the Magnolia neighborhood, but we haven’t really touched upon the park itself since we began the Million Cool Things to Do in Seattle blog.

Located on 534 acres overlooking the Puget Sound on Magnolia Bluff, the city’s largest park used to house the Fort Lawton Military base. Today, Discovery Park is home to hiking trails, woodlands, sand dunes, two miles of protected tidal beaches, meadows, wildlife, a Visitor’s Center, preschool, and the aforementioned, Daybreak Star Cultural Center.

Whether you’re looking for a little peace and quiet on the beach, some exciting play time with your kids, or an adventurous and slightly challenging run through the woods, you’ll get more than you asked for at Discovery Park.

Besides, what’s not to like about a place where you can get a view of both the Olympic and Cascade mountain ranges?

Catchya on the trails!
