Magnuson Park

Magnuson Park is one of the largest Seattle parks along Lake Washington northeast of Seattle.

You can walk or run on more than four miles of trails or swim when it is the season.

You can explore a range of natural areas. There are grasslands, wooded hillsides, wetlands and shoreline within the park’s boundaries.  Look for kiosks throughout the park that describe the types of birds and animals you are likely find in the nearby.

A walk around Green Lake

A 3-mile walk around Green Lake is always a pleasure, especially when the sky is this blue! Be aware that it may be crowded on weekends. You can bike, run or walk and cross strollers and skateboards. You can also rent a paddle board during summer!

Lucky us, we spotted a bald eagle at the top of a tree. A very elegant bird!

Wonderful Discovery Park

Discovery Park is one of my favorite parks in Seattle. Whatever the season, I always have the feeling I am on vacation when I lie down on one of the huge tree trunks on the beach.

This park is huge, you can bike, run or hike and enjoy the beauty of nature and the scenic view.

When you reach the beach, Mount Rainier is on your left, the lighthouse on your right and the Puget Sound in front of you. If you are lucky you can spot sea lions. No need to be a child to enjoy building houses with floated wood.
