Disc Golf

There are so many things to see and do at the Elm Creek Park Reserve it’s hard to figure out where to begin.  One unusual feature of Elm Creek Park Reserve is the fact that it has three disc-golf courses. A person really has to be a pro to play these courses.  There are two par-4 holes, and some of the holes are championship-caliber, requiring both accuracy and distance.  You will want to practice on some easier courses before you try these demanding disc golf courses.

Family Archery 

Another unusual feature of Elm Creek Park Reserve is that it has a family archery program.   There are teachers to teach your family how to use a bow and arrow safely.  It’s a fun family activity for years to come.
