Live within Seattle’s largest green space, iconic Discovery Park!

Discovery Park’s genesis and history are intertwined with community organizing, volunteerism, and activism. A bold 1970 occupation of Fort Lawton by Native peoples, in the name of ancestors who had lived on Magnolia Bluff since time immemorial, raised public consciousness and paved the way for the formation of the Indians of All Tribes Foundation, which in turn established the Daybreak Star Indian Cultural Center in 1977, to provide needed services for urban Indians. Earlier, Citizens for a Fort Lawton Park (founded 1968) had successfully agitated against continued military use of the land. Its successor, Friends of Discovery Park, through education, fundraising and conservation, actively protects Kiley’s vision for the park. By contrast to the transient armed services divisions once stationed here, the army of volunteers marshaled by Friends of Discovery Park is rooted in community.One of the three upstairs bedrooms.Third upstairs bedroom/office.Verdant outlooks from large windows celebrates stewardship of the Land.

Cherish stewardship of 534-acre Discovery Park’s meadow lands and forest thickets, dramatic sea cliffs and active sand dunes – minutes from urban amenities and major employers.“The primary role of this park in the life of the city is dictated by its incomparable site. That role should be to provide an open space of quiet and tranquility for the citizens of this city – a sanctuary where they might escape the turmoil of the city and enjoy the rejuvenation which quiet and solitude and an intimate contact with nature can bring.”   Dan Kiley, landscape architect, Discovery Park Master Plan, 1972Genius of the Place. Based on John Charles Olmsted’s 1903 plan to transform what was then the infantry encampment Fort Lawton into a public park to anchor the system of undulating boulevards and green spaces Olmsted designed for Seattle, the 1972 Discovery Park Master Plan by notable landscape architect Dan Kiley (1912-2004) preserves the wild meadows and forests of Magnolia Bluff. Celebrated for his collaborations with modernist architects (including I.M. Pei, Eero Saarinen, and Louis Kahn), Kiley brought decorum and restraint to his subtractive design for the park and allowed the spectacular natural landscape to reveal itself from cunningly sited clearings and vantage points.Community Amenity: One of two playgrounds.Community Amenity: One of two playgrounds.Community Amenity: Firepit.Benefit from swift access to employment hubs and shopping.      · Metropolitan Market 1.1 miles  · Historic Old Ballard through the Locks 2 miles   · Magnolia Village 2.2 miles  · Whole Foods Market 3.8 miles  · Fremont Tech Hub 4.5 miles  · Expedia Group 4.5 miles  · Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation 5.2 miles  · South Lake Union 5.8 miles  · UW 6.4 miles  · Downtown Seattle 6.5 miles
