After further research, the Seattle Parks Dept. now considers what is left of the former Fort Lawton, Daybreak Star and Discovery Park areas one unit, thus making it the largest park in Seattle. Seward Park occupies Bailey Peninsula so if you said Seward, Fort Lawton or Discovery we will accept all of them do to the wording in the question above. (The combined Fort Lawton & Discovery Park cover over 500 sq ft and Seward over 300 sq ft.) Technically the correct answer for Seattle's largest park is...What is Discovery Park?
