Project series documents Cornelia Hahn Oberlander's unrealized landscape project for the Discovery Parks University of British Columbia's site in Vancouver, British Columbia.

Initially founded by the provincial government, Discovery Park became self-governning and independant in 1990. The planned site was located at the corner of Westbrook Mall and 16th Avenue.

The project series only contains Oberlander's notes, documentation, correspondence with University of British Columbia and the University Endowment Lands.
