The Cardboard Boat Regatta is back on for 2021. Start making your boats now for this exciting race on the South Lake at Discovery Park. Boats can only be made out of cardboard and duct tape – nothing more! This a great summer event for all participants and guests of the park to enjoy. Races begin at 11 a.m.

Looking for a fun team project for your STEM/STEAM clubs? This is a great way to sharpen skills in building and designing boats for the ultimate test in the waters. Free cardboard is available to be picked up at Discovery Park. Just call our grounds department at 731-885-5455 to schedule a time for pickup.
