Discovery Park Vegetation Management Plan

Address: 3801 Discovery Park Blvd, Seattle, WA 98199 > directions
Visitors Center: (206)386-4236 |

The 1972 Master Plan for Discovery Park defined the park as an open space of quiet and tranquility away from the stress and activity of the city. The park will be managed to retain as much of its natural character as possible, balancing the maintenance and restoration of the areas forested predevelopment condition with existing uses of the park.

The Master Plan was revised in 1974 and a vegetation management plan was prepared for the park in 1980. However, population growth in the region has increased usage of the park and put new pressures on its plant communities. In the face of these changing conditions, the Seattle Department of Parks and Recreation (DOPR) decided to prepare a new vegetation management plan.
