Because of inclement weather, I have rescheduled the mountain hike I had planned for this day. I don't mind getting wet but I don't need to drive 2 1/2 hours to do so. I still need to get out so I am going to go do the trails at Discovery Park. Anybody that would like some exercise despite the rain is welcome to join me.
Meet at the Visitor Center at 10 am and plan on a 60 - 90 minute walk/hike through the park and along the shore.
ABOUT DISCOVERY PARK
Discovery Park is a 534 acre natural area park operated by the Seattle Parks and Recreation. It is the largest city park in Seattle, and occupies most of the former Fort Lawton site.
The site is one of breathtaking majesty. Situated on Magnolia Bluff
overlooking Puget Sound, Discovery Park offers spectacular view of both the
Cascade and the Olympic Mountain ranges. The secluded site includes two miles of
protected tidal beaches as well as open meadow lands, dramatic sea cliffs,
forest groves, active sand dunes, thickets and streams.
The role of Discovery Park is to provide an 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. Maintained in its semi-natural condition the park will continue to offer
a biologically rich and diverse natural area for urban dwellers and an unmatched
opportunity for environmental education.
