I have enjoyed two group barbeques in Discovery Park. It is a great area to work out in,play games,or ride a bike. I see it as a viable short cut when necesary.

I walked up Jibboom Street to Discovery Park. It is a quaint little park less than half a mile from the hotel I stayed in. You actually walk across an iron bridge over the river (don't look down). You can use the boat launch. It...More
