Great and fun events are held at Discovery Green and they are, for the majority of them, free. Events are mostly family-oriented. Check out the event calendar online to plan your trip. Even if there are no events going on, there are playgrounds for the kids, both wet and jungle gym style. It would be a great picnic area once the trees grow and provide more shade. There are even runs for big and small dogs, and in between. Parking may be a little difficult - it is, after all. located in downtown and to be expected. Clean restrooms are available. There is a little library at Discovery Green, and a snack bar for light refreshments. A full service restaurant is also at the Green.
