Discovery Park

This 85-acre park in Muscatine is a natural area in an urban environment. Walking trails, fishing ponds, and the Environmental Learning Center invite people of all ages to come and explore nature. It is located on Cedar Street off Highway 61.

This park was once the site of the Muscatine County Farm. In its heyday residents helped work the farm and enjoyed the fruits of their labor.
