Discovery Center


Over the last few weeks there has been an increase in COVID-19 transmission in the East Metro and across the state. As a result, in the interest of protecting the safety and health of our citizens and employees, city facilities, including the Oakdale Discovery Center, will be closed to the public effective Monday, November 23, 2020 until Monday, January 4, 2021.

We look forward to seeing you when the building reopens!
