Unleash your inner explorer, artist and space traveler with a Discovery Kit

Have you ever wanted to explore the outdoors, create a masterpiece or go to space?

You’re lucky!

Our FREE Discovery Kit rental program is designed to help you do all of those things while visiting a park.

Each kit is designed to encourage visitors to explore and discover the park at their own pace.

They are available at the entrance gate or in the park store for visitors to sign out for a full day or half day.

Borrowing a kit will allow you to explore, observe and discover the park on your own or with your friends and family.
