Inspire Children and Adults to See Beyond
Since Discovery Park of America opened its doors in 2013, millions of children and adults have been impacted by a big idea from Robert Kirkland and the community of Union City, Tennessee. They wanted to create a place where inspiration would happen every single day — inspiration to learn, grow, consider new ideas, and see beyond wherever an individual is in life.
“Discovery Park of America should enhance education for children as well as adults and do it in an entertaining way. I hope it will be a destination that people will visit again and again and walk away each time with an expectation for continued innovation.”
—Robert Kirkland, Founder of Discovery Park of America
From the students that visit for a hands-on, state-of-the-art learning experience to families that travel from around the world to discover something new, Discovery Park is making a big difference in the lives of the communities we serve. This couldn’t happen without individuals and organizations who support the mission with their time, talents, and financial resources.
