This park was ridiculously small, and most of the grass was brown. There was not much to do here nor any real landscaping to stop and admire. I would not go out of my way to visit this.

I went to Discovery Green to wait for an appointment time. I was so thrilled to be there! There was yoga with a lot of people and speakers! A water park area had people occupied and children laughing! Good fun!
