Unfortunately too many people think that it is OK for them to cruise through the Park because they are not "parking", or to drive to the beach because the Visitor Center is closed and there is no one to stop them. It is NEVER OK for private vehicles with able-bodied people to DRIVE to the beach.
This park is dedicated to peace and tranquility and getting away from the automobile. WALKING is the primary mode for exploring Discovery Park. There are other Magnolia and Seattle Parks that offer drive-by views, and auto-centric beach access.
Beginning April 6, 2015, King County will be enforcing their private property rights to TOW AWAY any vehicle found to be illegally parked. They will enforce the parking restrictions 24/7, and will tow all violators without further warning.
