Play Disc Golf
The Audubon Park Disc Golf Course presents outdoor fun for the entire family. Although patrons can play the game with a regular Frisbee, Audubon Recreation Center also provides sets of weighted discs ideal for the course. Similar to golf, the game involves the tossing of a disc from a tee pad to a basket on a pole. The course is open daily to the public.
