Pros: It is a short 9 hole local course with a little challenge from the water hazards on 3 holes.
Cons: It is impossible to play safely as many holes are directly up walking paths or through playgrounds. The water hazards are somewhat random, without good reward/risk options.
Other Thoughts: I would never go here for a practice round unless it was the only course within a 15 minute drive which is sometimes can be for me. If it was safer and had no water hazards, it would be a great place to bring beginners.

Pros: Set in a tiny (multi-user) park, this course has a bit of variety for being an 8 holer. You will have some tight lines on 3 holes, and more open shots on the remainder. You will also experience water on 3 holes (but only two of them pose much danger of losing your disc. There are 5 holes that present a reasonable challenge (1, 3, 5, 6, 7) and the other 3 - not so much. There are actually a several holes that would be considered decent design - if you are all alone without any park users.
Cons: As the designer himself mentioned, they designed this course before the park had any other users (perhaps the park was brand new??), and this place is too small to accommodate both. Hole #1 goes right up a walking path and over a bridge and apparently the OB water is nasty when it's full. Hole #2 literally has bbq stands ON the green with picnic tables in the line of any body who shanks their drive. Holes 3-5 go over beach area. Forget about hole 8 - again the fairway is on a pathway and the pin is right at the park entrance (with converging pathways). Just plain dangerous if there are any park users anywhere.

The baskets are a bit wonky and some were positioned too low to the ground, but they did catch discs quite well.
Other Thoughts: I went on a rainy day and my buddy and I were the only ones in the park. We actually had a really nice time until the rain chased us away. I wouldn't even bother to go on a nice day when there's a chance there would be people. I've never admitted, but I really think that this place should be either a regular park, or just a disc golf course - not both. Some discers think they have the right of way and I can see non-discers getting hit by discs (by even the best intentioned disc golfers). There are a few truly nice holes here and thank the course designer for the efforts, but should reconsider a re-design if there can be any type of symbiosis (and safety) for everyone.

Pros: Great tee boxes
Cons: The baskets on hole 2 and 5 were removed.
Holes 3, 4, and 5 are unplayable if people are on the beach
Hole 8 is a pedestrian shooting gallery
Other Thoughts: What a disappointment. Hole 3, 4, and 5 are all built around the pond and beach but if you go in the summer during the day there is a high chance you won't be able to play. Looks like the basket on hole 2 was removed due to the summer camp. Hole 8 is possibly the worst hole design I've ever played. Besides the fact that there is a children's playground just off to the right of the initial stretch of fairway, the actual fairway is also the park's main access path from the main enterence. If you like the idea of throwing your drive into oncoming pedestrians then throw away, but if not I'd recommend skipping the hole entirely.
