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.

Good place for short hikes without going out of the city. Dog friendly and lot of parking. On a sunny day you will be amazed how many dogs are there. Lighthouse is small and almost cute but walk towards it is pleasant. Depending on where you park your car, the hikes vary in length but popular and bigger parking lot is the north side lot. From there you can access a lot of waking routes. Quite a few runners and cyclists on the way but there is enough space for everybody.
One special place, which will always be special to me. It is where I used to go to get away from the craziness that can be found few minutes driving from here. Love it on every weather. Stormy or sunny, this place is my place when I need a break. And good friends renew their marriage here, so it is even more special since that day.
Beautiful and scenic. Suitable for a 5 miles or 5K loops. Many hills and stairways for cardio training. Very fun for a 2-hour walk too. Be sure to take a picture of the light house!
After a very touristy week, my friends and I packed a picnic lunch and bused here on our last day in Seattle. It was incredibly relaxing to watch the tide roll in and explore the little driftwoods huts on the shoreline. The park also has a bunch of short walking paths that are very manageable for families with young kids or someone out for a jog and some fresh air.
Great place for a hike for those of us city-dwellers who don't drive. Take a stroll around the entire park for a nice, very-slightly-challenging romp through beaches and up (and down) lots of stairs. Awesome place. Walk over to Ballard via the Locks afterwards for a drink.
