This is a beautiful garden located in the heart of Discovery Park.

It was named in honor of the late Bernie Whitebear. Mr. Whitebear was an activist and leader in our community in Seattle and led groups of Urban Indigenous/Native/First Nations brothers and sisters toward their own self empowerment, through activism and collective thinking. He brought about the take over of Fort Lawton, where Discovery Park and Daybreak Star remain today.

The Bernie Whitebear Ethnobotanical Garden has over sixty kinds of Coast Salish plants.

It is also a sacred and healing space for all people – this transcends race, culture, creed, ethnicity and generations.
