I don't live near Union City. Is Discovery Park open and has anyone been? What does it cost to get in and is it worth the 100 mile drive?

It's scheduled to open late fall of this year, probably October. I got that info from someone who actually is on the board.

It's supposed to open in the fall. They haven't set prices yet, but last I was told they were considering something like $13 for an adult, and less for kids.

Forgot to add, from what I've seen, it'll be worth the drive. They're still buying right now, but the exhibits I've seen are pretty awesome.

Both plus more ...

Visiting their website will give you the best, most accurate information about the exhibits and galleries planned along with a layout of the grounds.

"Just me" shut up you have no idea what you are talking about. He has spent that on the park but a lot of other money has come from the county donations of tax payers looking to do something good for the county. It is people like you that make topix a sour webpage. For all others I am on one of the committees and we are shooting for a $13.00 price that may be a 2 day pass. We are are also looking at a yearly pass. There will be a lot of exhibits coming in and out that are going to be awesome and will merge into the seasons. It will be something different all the time. I wish all the luck to all involved.
Best answer I can give

I also hope the park does well... the admission price may be their one big issue. A 2-3 day pass included with the admission price would be good. A yearly pass would be good for locals (50 mile radius), but price it too high and many cannot afford it.

I have live places where something new happened over the objection to a lot of naysayers and when it was finished they all come back and say, how did we ever live without it.

The naysayers will probably be first in line.

If the museum has everything shown in the above web-site it will be well worth $13.00. Most of us spend more than that eating out, or going to the movies.

I spoke the words that come out of the sheriff's mouth that worked the scene. I also prayed for all involved was not speaking any ill towards anyone. I hope the child survived but I have been told and read several places where they did not. Glad to see you can spell in this one and I have not spoke ill in either one of these. Get a life and it seems you only want to pick out fault in anything wrote here.

You are full of crap. He didn't spend 100 million. He doesn't even have 100 million. He used 10 million as a tax write off. You so dumb.
