Project Overview

BPRD and Brooks Resources Corporation are working together to add around 35 acres of open space and a three-acre neighborhood park to the planned Discovery West subdivision, which is to the west of Discovery Park.

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 new Discovery West neighborhood. New park areas will become open in phases as Brooks Resources develops residential properties.

In 2020, an underpass was built on the Outback Trail that runs 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.
