Denny Blaine Park
The grassy unlifeguarded beach is surrounded by an old stone wall, which marked the shoreline before 1917, when the lake level was lowered nine feet by the construction of the Lake Washington Ship Canal. There is enough room for a volleyball net above and quiet picnics and sunbathing below.(Excerpt from Enjoying Seattle's Parks by Brandt Morgan)
Discovery Park
Discovery Park is a 534 acre natural area park operated by the Seattle Parks and Recreation. It is the largest city park in Seattle, and occupies most of the former Fort Lawton site. The site is one of breathtaking majesty. Situated on Magnolia Bluff overlooking Puget Sound, Discovery Park offers spectacular view of both the Cascade and the Olympic Mountain ranges. The secluded site includes two miles of protected tidal beaches as well as open meadow lands, dramatic sea cliffs, forest groves, active sand dunes, thickets and streams.
Don Armeni Boat Ramp
Located on Harbor Avenue and Maryland Street south of the Duwamish Head, Don Armeni is the most popular of Seattle's saltwater boat ramps. Don Armeni's close proximity to many favorite fishing spots on the south end of Marine Area 10 and the other south Marine Areas makes it a popular ramp for fishers during salmon season. Another attraction is the view. From across Elliott Bay the Seattle waterfront looks spectacular, making Don Armeni a popular spot for ceremonies, photographers, and sightseers.
Donnie Chin International Childrens Park
This park is a fun spot for play in the middle of the busy Chinatown International District neighborhood. In the center of the park, grass and sand form the yin-yang symbol. A bronze dragon sculpture created by artist Gerard Tsutakawa sits in the middle of this area. The sculpture is used as play equipment by children who frequent the park.
Duwamish Waterway Park
Quiet and secluded on the banks of the Duwamish waterway, this park offers benches and a large lawn area, complete with big trees for shade, a BBQ pit and picnic tables, and to top it off you can find views of ships using the waterway too.
