Lots of green grass
1 Helpful / 0 Not
Pros: Course is in an large area of lush green grass with widely scattered trees.
The mando on Hole 4 makes it an interesting dogleg right, and the long tee on Hole 6 requires either a high shot over the island in the pond or a big right sweeper around the end of the island.
Good concrete teepads, with signs embedded into the back corner of the pad. Moisture has gotten into the signs and made some of them difficult to read.
Cons: Most of the holes are similar, with a 300 - 400 foot distance over open ground to the basket with a few widely spaced trees to avoid. Many of the baskets are placed behind a tree to add some challenge, but there are few obstacles between the tees and the baskets. No real lines that need to be hit.
Some of the baskets are in close proximity to each other. Until you play the course a couple of times you may need to scout ahead to determine which basket to play.
Other Thoughts: Unable to play holes 3, 4, 5 and 6 on a weekday summer evening because of the large number of park visitors in the area of the pavilion, picnic, and playground areas. The next morning at 8:00 a.m. the park was empty.

Pros: Well maintained park. Good signage. Space is well utilized.
Cons: Not particularly challenging. No elevation change. Some walks to tees require you to walk through other fairways. The one water hazard in the park could have been better used.
Other Thoughts: This is overall a good course. It is well designed and fun to play even for more advanced players (but it is really suited to beginner players). The main issue with this course is that it just isn't a particularly challenging course. But it definitely makes the most of the space available.
A Nice Walk in the Park.
Pros: -Gorgeous Mountain Views
-Nice setting. Pretty Lake. Lush Grass. Clean
-Some challenging Pins.
-Long concrete Tee Pads
-Easy Park and Play In-town location.
Cons: -Yes there are non-players about.
-No this is not a hard-core players layout.
-Some of the holes get repetitive
-The par 2 and par 4s can be ignored. Just play all 3s.
Other Thoughts: -Play this course on a less windy, less crowded day.
-My first love is for technical, player designed courses.
But this is a REALLY pleasant alternative. Maybe this means the course is not for everyone, but try it:
Just mellow out and enjoy A Nice Walk in the Park.

Not very fun
Pros: Easy ace runs on a few shorter holes. Concrete tee pads. water fountain. police station (accidently tossed one on the roof, scrambled up and got it without being noticed)
Cons: The course was not laid out by any kind of disc golfer, few holes have any kind of technical line laid out for them, although most of them due to being randomly placed in a flat field. Hole 3 is long with a fat tree right in front of the basket, so pretty much no ace oppourtunity at all.
Other Thoughts: all kinds of pedestrians, picnicers, walkers, little kids to hit. you would be better off going to throw at the football field.

Pros: There are a few nice long drives, few trees...VERY clean and groomed park.People leave the disc alone...a very good thing..
Cons: LOTS of people, the people walk the park like zombies, they even lay a blanket right near the bascket. This is a city park, lot of the weekend crowds. don't play there on a weekend.
Other Thoughts: very good place to play, real pretty park they did the best they could for the local.

Very bored and frustrated
Pros: 18 concrete teepads and metal baskets.
Very clean park.
Cons: Very flat open park. Rather boring layout.
Signs are photographs taken from the "teepad". These were taken with a zoom from the general teepad area, so they are not very helpful. The park is rather small with multiple baskets in sight from any teepad, and even with the signs, it's hard to tell where to shoot. Several times we arrived at the basket to find we had shot at the wrong one.
This park is a multi-use park, and no effort has been made to avoid pedestrian paths picnic tables and playgrounds. One mando makes you avoid the library, but forces you to shoot towards the playground. It's ridiculous.
Other Thoughts: The signs stink, the fact that a disc-golf course has been super-imposed on a normal city park stinks. Yes there are concrete teepads and metal baskets and the park is clean, but the layout is boring, hard to navigate, and difficult to use with other park users getting in the way.
I have no desire to play this course again.

Too much foot traffic
Pros: Very well maitained park, excellent tee pads and signs.
Cons: Way to much foot traffic, have to watch your fairways very close so you don't tag an innocent civilian walking the park. Plus the day I was there, a family had actually lined the basket on # 2 with tin foil and had charcoal burning in it, IDIOTS.
Other Thoughts: I played everything as par 3< instead of the few 4's and a par 2.

Eagle Possibilities Here!
Pros: This course plays in the cleanest city park you'll ever find. There's not hardly a branch lying on the ground yet alone any trash or litter. Lovely Colorado snow-capped moutains sit off in the distance. It has some of the best, more informative tee signs anywhere, laminated actual pictures of the hole which are bolted onto to the tee pads. All 18 pictures were there and would be fairly hard to remove or vandalize. The pads are plenty big enough. The course forces you to roll especially on hole # 4 which has an anhyser mando shot around a tree.
Cons: Nothing real major, there is one crossing fairway. The park is flat, they've done a nice job with what they have to work with. # 6 has an alternative throw over a small pond.
Other Thoughts: I think it's kinda strange that five of the holes are (in my humble opinion) mis-marked, as to their pars. Holes 2, 9, 10 and 12 are all listed as par 4's and all are between 381 and 411 ft. So I guess they would play as 3 and 1/2's. All could be eagled with a big tee off and a nice putt! And then there is # 6, from the "A" is a 246 ft. par 2 with the basket hidden a tree. I'd normally call that a par 3.
A police station borders the course. I believe this explains the well kept appearance of the park.
