The Future of Discovery Green

The Future of Discovery Green

Discovery Green is about to get even greener when 31 new trees are planted in the northwest corner of the park. Soon trees, Cathedral Oaks and other mature varieties of oaks and elms will be right at home at Discovery Green, providing shade and color for visitors to enjoy. 

Other capital improvements underway include a new, expanded playground built for the thousands of children seen each month. The new playground will feature innovative play structures for both younger and older children, giving kids more to explore. Updated lighting throughout the park will take advantage of new, greener lighting systems that will enhance park visitors experience after the sun goes down. A new entrance at the northwest corner will better connect park users to the neighborhood that has grown up and around the park since it opened. During this exciting expansion phase, Discovery Green will remain your favorite greenspace to relax, explore and reconnect.
