Disc Golf Update

Parks and Rec created a temporary installation to gather first-hand information about the flow, safety, and layout of the course. The temporary holes that were installed on June 15, 2018 have been removed.  They are currently analyzing the information received from course users, neighbors, and visitors to the park through a community survey and constituent correspondence.

Parks and Rec will present the feedback and findings from our analysis at the November 13, 2018 Highland Park District Council meeting.
