Colonial Park

The forecast is calling for rain, but there is always a chance it could be wrong...

The Park's Putting Course and the Paddle Boats will open up for the season this Saturday. 

The Colonial Park Putting Course offers the player gardens and natural landscaping rather than the amusements found at traditional miniature golf courses. Designed over a 1.5-acre site, the course is influenced by the contours and natural characteristics with fairways ranging in length from 25 to 75 feet with rough, sand, and water hazards. To meet the spirit of the Americans with Disabilities Act, the course has been designed to be fully accessible to all players.
