Discovery Park is a 20.4-acre (0.083 km2) park in Chula Vista, California used for youth sports, community events, parties, and other functions.
In 2018, the park was the center of a scandal involving an alleged middle school fight club, with students from nearby Bonita Vista Middle School reportedly organizing fights and uploading videos to Instagram.
The park's statue of Christopher Columbus was vandalized in February, 2019, with red paint splattered on it and graffiti. A bronze plaque previously attached to the statue had been stolen.

  • Great addition to Rice Canyon. Good for picnics and exercise, as well as softball and other games. Great starting place for walks and bike rides up and down Rice Canyon.  more »
  • My kids visit the park at least once a week. It's a small park near out home. It has a couple of swings, 2 slides and a jungle gym. Not the best for super young children. Probably at least 3 is good.....  more »
  • Great ball fields in a great location. There's plenty of shade for anytime of day. I wish this was our home fields. The kids here don't know how good they have it. You can follow a trail to the top of any side to get a bird's eye view. Great for taking pics of the whole field at once. You can set a video and not miss a play without moving. We played tournament and it was purely amazing. I was able to fly my drone around the perimeter to get even better pics. Best location ever in my book.
  • There are four softball fields including a T ball field. Big open spaces in a valley and temperatures can be downright cold in the early spring evenings. The amount of litter that is usually everywhere and the condition of the restrooms are things that kept the rating at a 3 🌟. The park is nice but people should take more pride in their communities and teach their children to clean up after themselves.
