dr. jack lowe and I attended a meeting 2/17 about the Master Plan for swope.
the overall improvements to the park will have little impact on the course itself. there are plans to make the intersection of elmwood and gregory safer and landscape the corner around 16.
as part of the Front Door District, "...landscaped open spaces, Starlight Theater, the Zoo, daily use amenities, and historical elements.", the description and recommendations for the disc golf course: "The rolling terrain and dense tree canopy of this area have become home to a top flight 18-hole disc golf course. The course hosts many professional disc golf tournaments as well as regional and local tournaments.
Construct two small ponds to serve as water hazards for the course; and Provide new tree plantings for planned succession of the existing mature trees."
we also brought to their attention the hillsides that seem to have broken water lines. maybe we should have a get together for the parks folks when things warm up, give them a chance to walk the course.
as an aside, jack told me that 5/14 is the date of the city's biggest disc golf day being held at rosedale. watch this space for more info.
