Completed in 2006, this small neighborhood park received its name, “Discovery Park,” in a city-wide naming contest.

This unique park wows kids with unique playground equipment. Little ones will enjoy climbing on the big dinosaur or the enormous brass tortoise. When they tire of climbing, they can head over to the digging pit and be little archeologists for a while, finding the buried dinosaur bones hidden there. Discovery Park also features a climbing wall, a grass maze, and great views for the whole family to enjoy.

Amenities Available:

  • ADA Accessible Shelter
  • Water Fountain
  • Playground (smoking is prohibited within 25 ft of the playground)
