I decided on Discovery Park! I've been there for photo shoots, but I haven't taken my kids before. This park is absolutely huge. It sits on 530 acres, overlooking the Puget Sound. It actually occupies most of the former Fort Lawton site, which is an old military base. While there are trails throughout the park, you actually have to drive to get to a lot of the sites because it's so enormous. We spend a lot of our time around the old officer's quarters, exploring the old colonial looking buildings.
Discovery Park also has a beach area, but there's only 8 parking spots down there and you have to have a permit to park there... but that fiasco is neither here nor there.
Long story short, we got the kiddo's down to the beach eventually and they were in absolute heaven!! They've been to beaches before but this one has an old lighthouse (built in 1881!), it was a pretty big hit with the kids. But they spend most of their time dragging around driftwood, throwing rocks and collecting seashells... everything you'd expect little boys to do :)
