About

Discovery park is a 48 acre park that opened in 2006. The park features 5 multi use fields, basketball courts, sand volleyball pits, 2 ponds which are stocked as part of the community fishing program, a small playground with a fun climbing rock, a network of multi use trails, and 8 picnic ramadas (with power and bbq grills). Ramadas can be reserved for events.

Discovery Park was named after the discovery of fossils of a Columbian Mammoth near the site during construction. After a naming contest, the mammoth came to be known as Tuskers. Exact replicas of the fossils found can be seen at Southeast Regional Library in Gilbert.
