The city of Clarkson will install a disc golf course in its city park in the near future.
Clarkson City Commissioner Michael Anderson said during Monday’s regular commission meeting that a recent event to support the installation of a disc golf course in the Clarkson city park had raised over $6,000 and was attended by over 40 people.
The total cost of installing a disc golf course in the city park was determined to be $10,377.66, and, with a total of $6,618 in funding raised for the course, Anderson made a motion to contribute the remaining $3,759.66 from the Clarkson Parks fund to finish the project.
“I think it’s a great thing for our park,” said Anderson.
Clarkson Mayor Bonnie Henderson expressed her support for the project, noting that disc golf is a popular sport that can be played year-around.
Concluding the discussion, the city commission voted in favor of Anderson’s motion to provide the remaining funding needed to construct a disc golf course in the city park.
