Parks Foundation Calgary is proud to be launching its premier 2016 project, the David Richardson Memorial Disc Golf Park, a spectacular sport facility that will be accessible to all Calgarians, while drawing competitors from around North America.
The proposed 18-hole disc golf course is to be located on a 27-acre site in Calgary’s northwest and will be built in memory of Calgary businessman and avid disc golfer David Richardson. The course will be one of the best facilities in North America in a low-cost sport open to participants of all ages and abilities.
It will be the longest disc golf course in the city with the potential to be a professional tournament venue, while at the same time offering an enjoyable outdoor activity for novices, enthusiasts and their families.
The Park will sit on Parks Foundation Calgary’s Rotary-Mattamy Greenway, a world-class outdoor recreational playground marked by its inclusiveness of use by all Calgarians, regardless of their abilities and economic backgrounds.
The Greenway’s 138-kilometres of pathways, parks and playgrounds, and preserved wetlands — that make up a giant wheel of amenities encircling the city — is slated to be completed in 2017.
