Parks + Gallery
Discovery Park is our #1 destination! It's 534 acres of pure doggie delight. It's not only the largest park in Seattle, it's also the most unique with so many varying places to explore. From the tall grass trails out on the bluff to the many back meadows and ponds, to the forest area trails, we could spend all day there and not even scratch the surface. The Capeheart forest area is truly breathtaking. It's so amazingly peaceful there when I take my pup pals on weekdays. A real gem, unlike any other park in the city!
Carkeek Park is our 2nd fave destination. It's 220 acres of fun exploration. Plenty of lush forest trail options and Piper's creek stream. This park has multiple entrances so each takes us to a different area of the park making it feel like multiple parks in one. We are particularly fond of a trail just outside the park boundaries, the Mary street trail, which is a sweet trek leading to the South trails of Carkeek. It's an amazingly green park and checks all our boxes for a terrific nature walk!
We like to throw a trek to Llandover Woods in the mix here and there. It's not the biggest park but it is a peaceful nature space tucked into a forested gully. There is a loop trail that wraps around what I like to call Fern valley. A terrific place for the pups to work their noses!
