Discover Discovery Park

Weekend Tour

Join us on a walking tour of Seattle’s largest park (534 acres) and the city’s crown jewel, with natural areas featuring majestic bluffs overlooking Puget Sound, tidal beaches, groves of madrona trees, grassy meadows, dunes, and a lighthouse.

On a clear day take in the breathtaking views of the Sound, and the Cascade and Olympic Mountain ranges, including Mt. Rainier. With park naturalists, we will hike through the park, learning about the unique history of Fort Lawton and the biologically rich natural environment. Discovery Park provides a large open space of quiet and tranquility away from the stress and activity of the city, a sanctuary for wildlife, as well as an outdoor classroom for people to learn about the natural world.

The park is also home to the Daybreak Star Indian Cultural Center, which serves as a community center for Native Americans in the Seattle area and headquarters for the United Indians of All Tribes Foundation.
