As the City of Seattle's largest multi-use park at 534 acres, Discovery Park is a park of regional significance. It is a major draw for a wide demographic range of users as well as recreational opportunities. It is also one of the best places in Seattle for bird watching with over 230 species identified.
Many of the areas of the park have been degraded by invasive plant species and lack the diverse habitat needed to provide a balanced ecosystem. We will be continuing our restoration efforts by removing these invasive species and clearing space in preparation for planting native vegetation in the fall. The project will enhance the species diversity, forest structure and function of the area. Thanks for volunteering with the Greenway and the Green Seattle Partnership!
