Discovery ParkFlag review
To get an idea of the region’s diverse ecology, I brought the kids to Discovery Park, one of Seattle Parks and Recreation’s holdings, and the largest city park in Seattle. A very petite Environmental Learning Center introduces kids to the park's various trees and animals, and it’s not far from a shady playground. Along the bluff, we hiked past thickets and streams, then discovered two miles of tide pool-decorated beaches, a lighthouse, and sea cliffs. At low tide, look for sea creatures (crabs, anemones); at high tide, try hiking any one of the bluffside trails.
Tips for Families
Get a tidepool guide before you visit, so you can ID the beachside plants and creatures.
