About This Spot

Discovery Park is the largest city park in Seattle. Encompassed in it boundaries is the historic site of Fort Lawton, (including a small enclave of housing which still belongs to the military), the Day Break Star Native American cultural center, a partially hidden sewage treatment facility, and an abandoned lighthouse. In addition, the park has forest, grassland and beaches as well as over 11-miles of trails connecting everything together. Photographically, the lighthouse is the main attraction as it sits on the shores of the Puget Sound with the Olympic Mountains as a backdrop.
