With summer in full swing the Metroparks Planning Department is busy assessing and improving your parks. Currently, construction of an additional nine holes is underway at the Kensington Metropark Black Locust Disc Golf Course. The course is being reconfigured as an 18-hole, 5,801 yard North Course and 18-hole, 7,277 South Course. The anticipated opening date of the new holes on the South Course is July 9.
The Metroparks hike/bike paths provide access to beautiful scenery and often lead to fine natural vistas. So why don’t we call these “nature” trails? Simply, in the eyes of wildlife, some areas have more nature than others.
