Discovery Green

Discovery Green is a rolling green space that is a great place to relax as well as a great place for taking some pretty great Instagram photos. With over 11 acres of space, this urban park could keep you occupied all day long. There are plenty of great Instagram spots spread throughout the park that you will find while you are walking along. For instance, over one of the sidewalks you can see trees that canopy over the walkway with benches lining the way. Depending on the season, you can take photos with the luscious greenery or the empty branches for a more dramatic look.

This vast park has a lot to see!

The Hess Patio Deck is another great photo opportunity. The deck is surrounded by brightly colorful blocks that make for a great backdrop for Instagram photos as well as a nice place to relax. These colorful blocks are known as the Synchronicity of Color or the art boxes. The boxes are made of metal and were painted mainly with the colors blue and red. The boxes were installed to bring a pop of color to the park that would bring joy to their visitors. Another great spot within the park is the Mistree. It is a type of fountain that mainly produces mist and makes for a great photo-op as well as a nice way to cool off during the summer. The structure of the fountain along with the mist is most definitely Instagram-worthy. The shape creates a wall of rain, which looks almost like fog in photos.
