Great Space for BBQs

I have enjoyed two group barbeques in Discovery Park. It is a great area to work out in,play games,or ride a bike. I see it as a viable short cut when necesary.

I walked up Jibboom Street to Discovery Park. It is a quaint little park less than half a mile from the hotel I stayed in. You actually walk across an iron bridge over the river (don't look down). You can use the boat launch. It is a beautiful view at sunset.

If it's not on fire a fine place to visit. BUT PLEASE, if you are going into the river wear a lifejacket. So many drownings this year Most would be preventable with a life vest.

We parked our truck and boat trailer while we went out on the river. Upon return, I discovered a broken off key on the door of my truck. After removing the key. I started driving to the boat ramp to get the boat out of the water and the trailer started dragging on the ground behind the truck. It turns... More

Spent a day here wandering around, enjoying the wildlife (there were several different types of birds) people watching and enjoying the weather. Nice place to stretch your legs and get lost if your not familiar with the park at all! Loved it.
