Project Overview

Discovery West is a collaboration between BPRD and Brooks Resources Corporation which will add over 35 acres of open space and a three-acre active recreation area to Discovery Park. New park areas will become open in phases as Brooks Resources develops new residential properties.

The project includes a paved, multi-use trail connection between Discovery Park and Shevlin Park called the Outback Trail, as well as other trail connections to the soon to be developed Discovery West neighborhood.

In 2020, a new underpass was built on the Outback Trail that passes below Skyline Ranch Road. The underpass serves as a gateway to Discovery West from Discovery Park and features a mural by local artist Douglas Robertson honoring women explorers, pioneers, and others who have made important contributions to society.

Development west of the Skyline Ranch Road and NW Crossing Drive
