In Seattle, there are three communities which offer nearby access to some amazing outdoor recreation; Magnolia & Discovery Park, West Seattle and Lincoln Park, and the most pristine park in the city, Seward Park. At Discovery Park and Lincoln Park, you can hike down to the shore and watch sea birds, or glimpse an occasional seal. At Seward Park, the most pristine of city parks, you can wander through a forest of old-growth trees and observe eagles perched in the tree tops. Seward Park connects to Lake Washington Boulevard, an Olmstead designed boulevard, which is a popular bike route into downtown. Whether you like to kayak, bike, or just take a walk, these three communities offer you a superior outdoor experience with all the benefits of an in-city lifestyle.
