Discovery Park has a little bit of everything from a few nice hikes to some great beach areas to explore. The Nature/Educational Center is an added bonus as visitors can learn about the park and surrounding area. The displays are nice and some good information...More

This is a very scenic park. I went late in the evening. It was not busy. I am sure on nice weekends it is a bit crowded. It is worth visiting while in the area.

Beautiful views, densely forested trails, a hike down to the beach, and the Daybreak Star Native American Culture Center. Ferns and blackberries line the wooded trails, and the open areas offer some breathtaking views across the Sound to the Olympic Range. Great for a half...More

A surprisingly large park within Seattle city limits. Recommend the short trail down to the beach and the shuttle back up to the visitor center. Nice views of Puget sound.

Go at sunset to take in the view. Looks out over Puget Sound with excellent views of Rainier. Hikes through the park are full of interesting trees and plants. Worth the trip.

Discovery Park is very safe during the day. Lots of people, including kids, walking, jogging, biking, especially on a sunny day. We have never seen "homeless" folks in the park.
