VANCOUVER – Clark County Public Works began construction of an 18-hole disc golf course, pedestrian bridge and a shelter at Hockinson Meadows Community Park in May. Public Works expects to begin significant field work at the park later this month pending receipt of building materials. 

The disc golf course will be constructed on a 40-acre parcel of park land that is separated from the existing developed park areas by an unnamed stream. To provide access to the course, a pedestrian bridge over the stream will be constructed as part of this project. 

The course has been designed to meet Professional Disc Golf Association standards and each hole will include a tee pad, a hole marker, a basket and a bench. Trails throughout the course will consist of multiple surface types, connecting to the park’s existing trail system and adding 1.01 miles of trail to the park. A 225-square-foot shelter will also be constructed near the disc golf course and pedestrian bridge.

Construction is expected to be completed by the end of September, weather permitting. Construction activities are not expected to significantly affect roadway traffic but may occasionally impact park users accessing the adjacent playground.

Funding is provided by real estate excise taxes and park impact fees. In addition, disc golf enthusiasts raised $3,500 through the Parks Foundation of Clark County to support the project.
