Dedication for new Disc Golf Course at Homestead Air Reserve Park Saturday, June 25 at 11 a.m.

The disc golf course was made possible through The Miami Foundation’s Public Space Challenge

MIAMI (June 21, 2016)

Miami-Dade Parks, Recreation and Open Spaces Department will dedicate a new Disc Golf Course at Homestead Air Reserve Park, located at 12700 SW 268 Street in Homestead on Saturday, June 25, 2016 at 11 a.m. The Disc Golf Course was made possible through The Miami Foundation’s Public Space Challenge which uncovers the best ideas for creating, improving and activating parks, plazas and local gathering places.  Following the dedication there will be free outdoor activities for the entire family as well as a random doubles tournament. Cost to compete in the tournament is $15.

The Disc Golf course idea was submitted by David Hazim to help create a recreational space in the underutilized Homestead Air Reserve Park. “My project idea was to install a fun yet challenging disc golf course on the park’s grounds,” Hazim shared. “I see this as a way to help a growing community have more outdoor and inexpensive options in recreation. The idea allows access to free, fun and healthy living while strengthening the bonds of community.”
