A Very Good Course
Pros: Wide selection of hole (27), Usually not too busy, Challenging due to the wind conditons
Supposedly in 2008, the state has secured money to re-due the course and get new baskets.
There is also no charge to play. No one is ever in the tollbooths.
Cons: The course could use some new baskets.
Other Thoughts: I live right down the street so I'm always playing there. One of best courses in Niagara County and the WNY area.

Pros: You'll never run into much of a crowd here. 27 holes.
Cons: Some signs missing, a few baskets in rough shape and a lot of holes play fairly short.
Other Thoughts: JDSP has a pretty decent variety of holes although I'd say most play in the open. Almost all holes have some sort of obstacle to contend with, normally various trees or bushes. There are also a few holes that require a bit of precision through wooded alleys.
My most recent round here stood out as there were more than two people in the entire park. I've played here a few times over the years and I was almost always one of the only people there which is a shame as it's actually a nice park.
I'd probably play here more often if I lived closer but it's definitely not a stand out course as far as challenge, variety or scenery is concerned. It's a solid, fun course that's worth playing at least one round if you're in the area.

The best part of the park
Pros: Twenty-seven baskets provide a good day's workout. This is a course where the landscaping seems groomed for its purpose; trees that appear to have been planted when it was first constructed are maturing. With the exception of the monster hedges that devour discs, the course is pretty forgiving. New, descriptive tee signs were added in late summer of 2007, and the par was updated to 21st century standards.
Cons: It gets a little repetitive after a while, with the course mostly open and flat the same kind of shots get played again and again. The age of the course means that the holes on average tend to be on the short side. The low-lying areas on the 6th, 8th and 18th fairways do not drain very well, resulting in sizable ice rinks in the winter and 8" deep ponds on the course in early spring.
Other Thoughts: The ruins of an old swimming pool and snack bar at the end of the course may once have been the focus of the park. But now, the disc golf course is what puts this park on the map. It is obvious that those who care for the course still take a great deal of pride in it, even after 27 years.
