Discovery Park in Manila Park

1550 North 100 East

The role of Discovery Park is to provide an open space of quiet and tranquility away from the stress and activity of the city, a sanctuary for wildlife, as well as an outdoor classroom for people to learn about the natural world. Maintained in its semi-natural condition the park will continue to offer a biologically rich and diverse natural area for urban dwellers and an unmatched opportunity for environmental education.

In my young childhood. I lived in this area. In fact I lived it so much I camped on it. Not anymore though😓. I live this park. I have so many memories of playing baseball. There is the occasional time I would.... KICK PEOPLE'S BUTTS. It was so fun. Walk up and, "Hi sir, do you want a butt kicking today. Sorry, you don't have a choice. Hi ya!😎 I love this place!

Loads of children, supervised by parents, running all over the place. The day was beautiful, which was probably why there were so many people. The wooden area is dated and is scheduled for major repairs. Tennis courts and covered picnic area. Large grassy area and parking. When the play structure was built, there were quite a few corporate sponsors. I wonder if they forgot about the maintenance aspect of building the nice multilevel structure.

PROS: Huge and amazing. They don't call it discovery park for nothing. There are a lot of things to discover. It really is like a huge wooden playground maze with fun activities everywhere for children. It has big kid, baby and disable friendly swings. Swings for all! Besides a playgound they have lighted tennis courts. My daughter loves to watch them play. CONS: Your child can get lost VERY easily if you're sitting and watching. It is impossible to sit and nurse and watch your little one without losing sight of them. It's better for playing together, not sitting and watching. Don't come here to just watch your child. If you are there past dark the parking lot on the west (close near the bathroom) is very dimly lit. We came before sunset, but by the time we got to our car it made me nervous that it was so dark. Also, the bathrooms are very dimly lit at night. Bathrooms are very run down and dirty, in my opinion. It's best to wait until home to go.

Great park to take little kids. Tons of fun equipment, and the bathrooms are always clean. Always very busy with cliques of rich instagram moms! (If you like that sort of thing)
