Discovery Green – Weekend Rentals and Model Boats to Return in March 2012

We went to Discovery Green today in search of the model boats and game rental. When I spoke to the office, they told me that since February is a very slow month for the park, the rentals will return in March. I actually wasn’t all that disappointed today. It was a little chilly for relaxing next to the lake.

March is just around the corner and we’ll be sure to rent the model boats and games then.

Details from Discovery Green:
