When I need an escape from my hectic life, Magnuson Park is where I head. This haven in Seattle feels like your own secret spot (even on a busy day) because it’s so vast and expansive that it never feels over-crowded. It’s hard to believe that this kind of nature lies inside a city.

I recommend Magnuson Park for a nature walk via the wooded trails. If you’re lucky, you might catch a rare bird or hear a frog croaking as I often do in the late spring months. There are various park benches scattered throughout the park. I often like to sit briefly at several ones along my walk and enjoy the different views they have to offer. There are beautiful fields of overgrown asters, peaceful wetlands- you name it. 

Magnuson Park often hosts various events including a 5K brunch run that I’m taking part in this weekend. 

If you sit by the water on a clear day, you’ll be wowed by the amazing view of Mount Rainier. This is also the perfect place to bring a picnic- you couldn’t have a better setting. You won’t regret a visit here.
