Union City, Tenn.—Since Discovery Park of America first closed on March 17, 2020 because of the threat brought on by the worldwide coronavirus outbreak, our goal has been the safety and welfare of our community, guests and staff. While it saddens us to have to move and cancel events and close our museum and park to the public, we know it’s the best thing to do right now for all the communities we serve.
Currently, our plan is to keep Discovery Park closed through May 2020, and we will reevaluate and determine a date to reopen as we get closer to June.
Here you will find more details on each event that was scheduled in May 2020:
MAY 1, 2020
