Discovery Park

New York has Central Park, Boston has Boston Common, San Francisco has the Presidio. Seattle has Discovery Park

This expansive Seattle park is the crown jewel of our city’s impressive park system and it’s a marvelous place to explore with kids any time of year. The park’s 534 acres include a variety of trails, wide-open meadows, a sandy bluff overlooking Puget Sound and a beach. There’s a fantastic updated playground, a handful of geocaches and important local history to learn about. And on top of all that, there are those views!

The most impressive thing about this park is its sheer size. You can visit over and over again and discover new pockets every time. Read on for 10 awesome areas to explore with kids at one of my very favorite places on earth, Discovery Park.
