Although Discovery Park has a beach, it is not a prime spot for sunbathing or swimming as the water's a little cold and the beach a little rocky. Most visitors hike the miles of trails, which offer great bird-watching opportunities. One of the trails extends to Puget Sound, and after a lengthy downhill walk, you will find tide pools and a lighthouse.
People keep missing the major attraction of Discovery Park... The Westpoint Lighthouse! Yea, you gotta know exactly where it is. But it's the most beautiful and calm place around Seattle. Definitely worth seeing!
Discovery Park is truly a great get away spot. If you just have a few minutes or an entire afternoon, it's a great place to take a book or magazine, or just to watch the boats cruise by or you could spend the entire day exploring the parks different features. I highly recommend the south beach trail that leads down to the beach, though be prepared for kind of a tough hike, and make sure you bring some water! It would also have been helpful to print a map of the park off before going. The only downfall was the smell that sometimes blew over from the nearby sewage treatment facility, which nearly made me a gag a few times. But overall, it's definitely worth visiting.
