Pros: The course plays through a really nice city park. There are wonderful old trees that were brought from around the world to the estate that became this park, including some California Redwoods. The course is short, but uses the mature trees to force some left and right turning shots. A few of the baskets are placed next to brushy areas so shots that go long are left with tricky putts. A few others bring low ceilings or the small creek into play to add some challenge.
Cons: There are a ton of safety issues here. Some of the targets are shared for multiple holes, and even the ones that aren't cross over other fairways or play right over other targets and tees. On top of that there is a heavily used walking path that most of the holes play along or over, and many of the other holes go through perfect areas for family picnics. This course just isn't really playable on a nice weekend day.

The course is very short and straightforward. There is no distance and the limited rough means there isn't much punishment on errant shots. It seemed like a 9 hole course with less conflicts and more interesting shots would have been a better use for this park.
Other Thoughts: Beginners will find this course very approachable from a disc golf standpoint, it's not tough enough to be frustrating but it's pretty and has some variety. Less accurate players will exacerbate the safety issues though. Experienced players won't need more than a putter to score well here. I strongly recommend only trying to play this course at off-peak hours.
