Seattle real estate has been a big part of my life for well over a decade since I began my career in real estate,but also before that time when I was in the process of purchasing my own first home. Buying your first home can be quite overwhelming,but I have managed to help many first time home buyers along the way.
Seattle buyers and other types of specialized purchasing is a great passion of mine! I love Seattle houseboats and you can find me down on the docks of Lake Union and Portage Bay several times a week. Other aspects of Seattle real estate that I adore include Queen Anne Real Estate,Wallingford Real Estate, Ballard Real Estate, Green Lake Real Estate, Laurelhurst Real Estate, Magnolia Real Estate,andSeattle Waterfront Real Estate.

A break in the rain is a perfect excuse to go walk Discovery Park and if you are feeling really excited about it, head down the the beach. This is the ultimate in Magnolia waterfront property and it is free for all. Discovery Park offers a ton for Seattle residents and is another great amenity for Magnolia buyers to consider when looking at pluses and minuses for moving to Seattle’s Magnolia neighborhood.

The closure of Fort Lawton located in Magnolia’s Discovery Park is bittersweet. Gone are the days of active United States military happenings and left behind are empty buildings, parking lots and opportunity. This urban park is about 534 acres and ready for new potential and protected wildlife refuge.
The most controversial issue regarding the space is what to do with former military property acquired by the City of Seattle around Discovery Park. In 2004, city planners announced it would purchase 23- 24 acres of U.S. Navy property within the park. The decision was ultimately made to demolish the structures and create open space. In 2008, plans to close Fort Lawton opened up debate over what to do with the former military base. Now that the military is gone it seems that plans for the future are moving forward. Much of the park is emptied out and decisions need to happen here, and soon.
Fort Lawton Gate
Discovery Park can attract wild animals. In the winter of 2008-2009 a coyote in the park made headlines and in May 2009 a black bear was seen. In September 2009…the park was closed because of the presence of a cougar. The animal was trapped and transported to the Cascade Mountains. Next time you hike into the park and down to the waters edge look for the Orca Whales that have been reported to be more South than usual because they are hunting salmon which are close to the rivers & streams that run into Puget Sound.
Fort Lawton – The emblem on the gate has been removed. The United States Stars and Stripes no longer waves from the flag pole. Let’s not forget this important part of Seattle history. It is truly a facinating area to explore and live close. Let us know if we can answer more questions about the area and what Magnolia has to offer. Presented by Brian C.

A Day in the Park at Magnolia in Seattle
Yup. You are hiking in one of Seattle’s most treasured Parks. Nestled in Magnolia, Discovery Park is huge, gorgeous, and free. Discovery Park boasts a whopping 534 acres of biking trails, hiking trails, sand dunes, forest, and beach access. Families love the shady playground with the mini-zipline. Athletes and hikers love the countless bike and running trails. Birders love the vast variety of birds in the park, and everyone loves the jaw dropping Magnolia views of Puget Sound.
Stop by the Visitors Center for maps as this park is so large it’s easy to get lost. Discovery Park is the crown jewel of the Seattle Parks Department and Magnolia residents are so very lucky to live within minutes of it. Check it out while the leaves are turning. Don’t forget the camera.
