On Saturday June 3, Toronto and Region Conservation Authority (TRCA), in partnership with ChainLink Disc Golf, unveiled a brand-new course for the fast-growing sport of Disc Golf at Bruce’s Mill Conservation Park.
The grand opening event was well-attended by members of the community, program partners, and elected officials, alongside TRCA Board members and staff to celebrate the newest sport now available at Bruce’s Mill.
Disc Golf fuses frisbee throwing with golfing and is quickly becoming a massively popular activity in Canada. The object of the game is to throw a plastic disc toward an upright metal basket target while following golf-style rules. Like golf, the fewer throws it takes to reach the target, the better your score.
Disc Golf adds to the wide range of activities already offered at Bruce’s Mill, including TreeTop Trekking, hiking, picnicking, and perfecting your swing at the driving range. The nine-hole course, designed and built by ChainLink Disc Golf, is a family-friendly, inclusive way to get outside and get all the physical and mental benefits of being active.
Community members take part in the opening of the new Disc Golf Course at Bruce’s Mill Conservation Park.
The course at Bruce’s Mill takes advantage of the park’s existing features, minimizing disruption to the natural landscape and surrounding park areas.
Open year round, Bruce’s Mill and its disc golf course will contribute as an accessible place of enrichment for all people, serving to offer opportunities to get moving and have fun with friends and family while embracing nature.
Designed by ChainLink Disc Golf, the course at Bruce’s Mill takes advantage of the park’s existing features, and can be enjoyed year-round.
