Phase II of Discovery Park consists of developing approximately 77 acres from agricultural purposes into a regional park. The development includes a concession/restroom building, play structures, athletic fields specifically for softball and baseball, asphalt paving for parking areas, drive aisles, and inlet/outlets, and adding a turn lane on Lake Hazel Road. Additional features include infiltration drainage, landscaping, concrete sidewalks, slabs, stairs, and several alternatives, including an outdoor stage and picnic shelter. The park is owned by the City of Meridian and administered by the City’s Parks and Recreation Department.
