We know how spectacular our park system is, and it turns out, some of the city’s most concerned customers do too – parents.
This year, Discovery Park was voted the best Urban Nature Experience.
On the Golden Teddy Awards winners page it reads, “[Discovery Park] in Seattle’s Magnolia neighborhood has literally everything: Stroller-friendly loop trails, forested hiking trails, beachfront, a lighthouse and an environmental educational center with engaging programs year-round.”
One reader commented that the park, “feels like an out-of-the-city retreat while still being close to home.”
Carkeek Park was a finalist in the same category with a reader commenting that “It has everything — beachfront, forest, wetland, and a salmon-spawning creek in the autumn!”
Green Lake Park, which ParentMap deemed a “recreation paradise,” was a finalist in the Water Playparks and Pools category.
