The Unified Government will be officially opening a new 18-hole disc golf course at City Park on Friday, June 2 at noon. The community is invited to join us as we kick off the summer season with the new community amenity. Funded by Community Development Block Grants, this course will provide free recreational fun for Wyandotte residents and guests of our City Park. 

Disc golf is played in a manner that is very similar to golf. During a round of disc golf, the objective is to get the disc in the baskets at the end of each hole in the least number of throws possible. This is a rapidly growing sport with more than 254,700 registered Professional Disc Golf Association members across the world and there are more than 9,000 disc golf courses in the United States (USA Today, April 14, 2023). While not yet an Olympic sport, the new, free course at City Park will open up the world of disc golf for the next generation.

The public and media are invited to join us on Friday, June 2 at Noon at the Large Pavillion at City Park to throw out the first disc and celebrate the opening of these facilities. Hope to see you there!
