OK practice area
Pros: The 3 baskets are placed in a nice neighborhood park. One basket is on a slight rise, so there's a tiny bit of elevation shooting to or from that basket. There are some nice trees so you can set up shots with tighter lines and low ceilings to hit. There's plenty of room in the park to throw some longer shots.
Cons: The baskets appeared to be homemade and didn't catch great. The park had a bunch of people on a cloudy cool day, so I'm guessing it can get a little crowded at times. This is just a practice area, there are no tees or defined holes so don't come here expecting a full course.
Other Thoughts: Beginners will find this a great place to learn and hone new skills without any chance of lost discs. More experienced players will be able to use this practice area for everything from putting out to longer drives, it's a nice thing to have in your neighborhood. I like seeing this kind of thing go in smaller parks, it's a nice exposure for the sport.

Great practice area
Pros: Have you ever been frustrated with having a course designer tell YOU where you need to tee off from? You won't have that problem here! Make up your own tee!
There are three baskets to choose from. The park actually has some nice trees (and quite a few) to play around, through, and over.
Cons: No tees, no signs, and only about half of the park is even used. It looks like the middle of the park is used for soccer practice or something, and I'm guessing that's why there aren't a couple more baskets. Too bad, this could be a 5-hole course otherwise.
The map on this site shows one way to play this as a 9-hole course. I wouldn't spend much time trying to figure out precisely where you are supposed to tee off from.
The park was moderately busy when I was here. I was about to tee off on the first throw but had to wait for a woman with a parrot on her shoulder to walk down the path. These are the types of things you see in Vegas.
Other Thoughts: It's debatable whether this place is even a course (I'd say no). Having said that, I'm glad it's on this site. You probably have a park in your neighborhood with a decent playground, some useable swings, maybe a slide and some monkey bars. It's not a 5-star playground, but it doesn't have to be. It's just a neighborhood park.
That's how I feel about this place. If I lived within 10 minutes, I'd be here all the time, practicing my forehand and approach shots, maybe working on different lines. For those purposes, this place is great (you won't have to worry about people wanting to play through!).
But if you don't live nearby, I wouldn't go out of your way. It's just three baskets in a small park.
