About the Flint Hills Discovery Center
The Flint Hills Discovery Center is a focal point of the South End redevelopment. It offers a unique tourism and community experience that inspires people to celebrate, explore and care for the Flint Hills. The center is the result of a community dream born from the hard work and dedication of hundreds of individuals — including volunteers, elected officials, consultants, contractors and citizens. Located in the heart of downtown Manhattan, the Discovery Center celebrates the importance of the geology, ecology and cultural history of the Flint Hills.
