Discovery Park unveils new missile exhibit, kids garden

UNION CITY, Tenn. — Discovery Park of America cuts the ribbon to officially open its newest exhibit, a Kids Discovery Garden.

“It’s not just swing sets and see-saws. We’re talking a lot more than just that,” Grounds Director John Watkins said.

The park unveiled a play area for the young and the young at heart. Parents like Jessica Crosson said her kids were begging her to go see the new attraction. “Every time we drive by, every time we visit the park, they have been begging to come out here, so when I knew they were opening today, we wanted to be out here right away,” Crosson said.

“We’ve had a fantastic time putting this together,” Watkins said. “What better job could you have than to go out and look at playgrounds and design playgrounds? It’s something to make the kids happy.”

A giant chess board, life-size building blocks and a zip-line are just a few of the features.

Discovery Park also officially opened their Titan One Missile exhibit in the STEM Landing section.

The missile was donated to the park and has been restored to its original state.
