Fort Wayne Parks and Recreation, the Northside Neighborhood Association and Heartland Church of Fort Wayne are hosting the grand opening.

The project was made possible through an Investing Neighborhoods Now grant from the City of Fort Wayne’s Community Development Division which seeks to address needs in neighborhoods with collaborative and creative solutions, according to the parks and rec media release.

The Northside Neighborhood Association and Heartland Church proposed a family-centered, nine-hole disc golf course with the grant money.

“We’re eager to bring families together, provide another place and way to ‘get moving’ and to urge people from other parts of the city to visit our area and our local businesses,” said associate president Lori Stombaugh in a media release.

The Northside course will be the fourth maintained by parks and rec, with the others at Shoaff Park, Swinney Park and Tillman Park.
