Discovery Park is an escape away from the daily hustle and bustle of the city. Situated on the western part of Seattle, it is a 543 acre park with a beach complete with a lighthouse and also houses the United Indians of All Tribes Daybreak Star Cultural Centre.
The park has well-marked paths that lead to the beach or for a hike up to Lawton Fort which was a military base previously but has now been closed down. The cemetery adjoining is also a very calm place. The waves lapping up to the shore, the serene environs of the trees is very relaxing. There are over a 200 species of flora and fauna that have been recorded so it's a must visit for nature buffs. It can be trip for half a day or so to spend in re-charging your senses, soaking in the sights and sounds of nature. The view of Puget Sound with Mt. Rainer in the distance, on a clear day it's one of the most pleasing sights Seattle has to offer.
The Daybreak Star Cultural Center is the central activity center for Native American tribes. The building's structure integrated features of modern architecture and Native American art and culture. It is an auditorium and art gallery and a place where Native American cultural events like the Pow wow- a dance are organized occasionally.

Discovery park is beautiful. There's a decently long hike to a little old light house! The hike goes through the amazing and forest and along the shoreline which offers cliff side ocean views. I really couldn't believe what I was seeing at some points not being from this area. It's definitely a treasure in Seattle.
This was such a fun family day for us. I recommend it even for little kids. Mine had a blast just running around in the woods!
Wonderful place to see the natural landscapes of Seattle. Park your car in a lot and walk through the trails to the lighthouse. There are running streams and lots of trees along the trails, as well as rocky beaches and great views of the Puget Sound.
Peaceful and a great way to stretch your legs. Friendly people are here and just a relaxing place to go if you love scenery and nature.
One of the best parks in Seattle! It is a huge park with a great view. There are trails to trek down to the waterfront. It's a beautiful place to visit on a sunny day.
