Magnolia Park – Views over Puget Sound

When most people think of parks in the area, Discovery comes to mind (check out the article). Yet there is so much that’s left unsaid about Magnolia Park, a small, casual, intimate green space with sweeping views of Puget Sound and magnificent Mount Ranier.

There is something unique and special about Magnolia Park. A good energy. Maybe it’s that it’s never too busy and is well spread out. 

I came across it one day when I was driving around, admiring some of the glass houses and manicured lawns in the clean and safe area. You can find a lot of residents biking up and down the streets. A small car lot leads you to a pathway toward a sloping park with scattered benches, BBQ pits and picnic tables. Imagine the type of hill you can see yourself tumbling down. There are some great tennis courts here, too. On a clear day in the spring and summer months, you can see a number of white sailboats on the water.  

This is a quiet and peaceful place to take a lazy afternoon nap. 

And the best thing about this place? It’s only a 4 mile drive from downtown, making it incredibly accessible to visitors.
