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.

  • 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.

  • This park is exceptionally photogenic and scenic. On a sunny day you can see the Cascades and Mount Ranier. As far as transportation and accessibility goes this one is easy: plenty of parking for those that drive and multiple buslines drop off at or near the park. Excellent views of Puget Sound and loads to do - it's family friendly! I saw plenty of adorable dogs during my visit. The park itself is also very clean and neat. Public restrooms were limited but overall I thoroughly enjoyed my visit.

  • 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.

  • Beautiful park! We parked at the visor center, walked the loop trail to hidden valley to north beach, saw the light house, and headed back on the loop. Ended up being about 5 miles. Great on a sunny day
