Located next to Parker’s new library, the park and plaza on Mainstreet and Pine Drive is a unique destination, which opened Winter 2016. With interactive fountains in the summer, a vibrant ice trail in the winter, and performances and events throughout the year, the new 1.5 acre park promises to be a four season community gathering place.

Ice Skating


During the winter, the Parker Ice Trail at Discovery Park is available seven days a week. One of the only ice trails in the country, the new  skating path meanders through the park reminiscent of a frozen river or canal. Skaters or visitors can stay warm next to any of the three fire pits adjacent to the Ice Trail, or enjoy hot chocolate while watching skaters pass by. Concessions, skate rental and restroom facilities will be available for all patrons visiting the park.

Water Feature


The new park and plaza features a large, interactive water fountain with programmable water jets embedded below the paving surface. The approximately 900 square foot fountain features color changing LED lights allowing use during the day or on a warm summer evening.

Performance Stage


Parker residents love to be entertained, so a performance stage is located at the north end of the park for concerts or performances. The park is equipped with sound and lighting to enhance your musical experience and a large lawn allows for casual seating.

Public Art

 
Discovery Park features the larger than life "Ball and Jacks" sculpture, which serves as a gateway to the east end of downtown Parker. The artist, Christopher Weed of Colorado Springs, says the sculpture, like the park itself, speaks to a simpler time of connection to friends, family and community.
