Eastview Park Disc Golf

Between February 18 and March 14, 2021, we asked you think about putting an 18-hole disc golf course at Eastview Community Park, where its boundaries meet Speedvale Avenue East and Watson Parkway. The space is an ideal location for a disc golf course that offers lots of natural obstacles and varying terrain to challenge local enthusiasts.

In our survey, we wanted to know:

  • If Eastview Community Park is an appropriate place for a new disc golf course
  • What you think of the proposed location within the park
  • Any considerations we should make in the course design

We are currently reviewing the hundreds of survey responses received, and will share our findings soon.

We will use your feedback to determine if a disc golf course is right for the space, and if so, any alterations we can make to the course design to ensure that the park remains a multi-use space for a variety of users.

    It seems to be that there were trails planned on the other side of the pollinator Park toward eastview. Will these be finished first? Will the pollinator Park open trails for walking around it? Will this project affect hiking and dogwalking? If so how?

    Fred Frinstine asked about 1 month ago

    There are more walking trails conceptualized in the Master Plan for this park; however there is no planned date for work on expanding the trail system at this time.  If the project moves forward, detailed design of the course will make sure that the existing trails are not impacted by the disc golf course.

    I think this is a good idea however , I really think a outdoor hockey rink should be built back there, we NEED to get kids off the ponds before someone gets hurt or even worst. The rink could be used for ball hockey in the summer “no to little maintenance” and In the winter instead of making rink at the park down the street just come do some up keep on the outdoor rink . It’s very cost efficient for the amount of use that will come out of it .

    Shane asked about 1 month ago

    While we're not sure that our outdoor ice rink program would apply to ball hockey in the summer, outdoor community ice rinks are volunteer run.  Please visit https://guelph.ca/living/recreation/parks/community-ice-rink-program/  for more information about the program and list of locations where rinks can be made.

    Will there be any lighting in place for the course?

    Shayne asked about 2 months ago

    We haven't gone into that level of detailed design, right now we're just looking for feedback from the community on whether this is a good location for a disc golf course.

    What’s to happen with all the beautiful tree and walking trails?

    Chris asked about 2 months ago

    The intent is to use areas that don't impact existing uses.  The conceptual design we've provided is meant to provide reference to the areas that we could use for a disc golf course. If the proposal continues, a detailed design would be completed to ensure a course doesn't impact the trails and integrates into and compliments the existing landscape.

    Is the Watson end of this proposed course going to necessitate removal of any of the trees between the road and the walking trail? This area of the walking trail provides the only stretch of shade in the summer, and is frequently the "stop and take a break" stretch of trial for hikers, cyclists, and dog walkers because of the shade provided by those trees.

    goaskalix asked about 2 months ago

    We don't expect there to be any tree removals between Watson Road and the walking trail as a result of this project. There may be hazard tree removals that are necessary to maintain safety for trail users, but those would not be part of the disc golf course.

    Is a third course necessary for a club of less than 400 total people? Is there obscene wait times at the other courses?

    Lyndon asked about 2 months ago

    The proposed disc golf course is not yet a done deal; we’re currently looking to understand from the community if there is appetite for such a facility in this location as we have witnessed line-ups of people waiting to play at the Riverside Park course.

    Will the forested and wetland arrears be impacted by this development?

    Lyndon asked about 2 months ago

    We as a City are very environmentally conscious and considerate of the natural spaces that exist in our parks; if this proposal is supported, the design will keep that in mind. Disc golf differs from traditional golf that requires large open spaces, lots of grass and no trees; a disc golf course would be designed to be a complimentary feature to the natural landscape of the park.

    Where specifically will the disc golf course be located? There is a trail and forested area at the Speedvale and Watson boundary of the park. Will this trail and forested area be impacted?

    Paul Wombwell asked 2 months ago

    We've updated the conceptual design on the main page to show a little more detail.  The existing trails are not impacted by the conceptual design; the routing as shown navigates its way through wooded and non-wooded areas.
