Modeled after the area’s natural landscape, Discovery Park will aesthetically enhance existing wetlands while minimizing stormwater runoff and improving wildlife habitat and bio-diversity. The park will also offer opportunities for education about Santa Clarita’s native wildlife, scenery and environment.
Designed with sustainability in mind, Discovery Park will include many environmentally-friendly features, such as drought-resistant plants, native and native-adapted landscaping, low volume irrigation and permeable surfaces meant to improve water retention and decrease water consumption.
I've been walking in this area for the past 15 years and have started making a "Photo Diary" of the building of this park, starting with what it looked like before the ground-breaking. I will continue to post photos until the park is complete.
