Belle Plaine, Minn., volunteers and children gather to transform Court Square Park into a disc golf course for the entire community to enjoy.

Project EverGreen, a nonprofit promoting the value of preserving and revitalizing managed green spaces, took its “Healthy Turf. Healthy Kids.” initiative to Court Square Park in Belle Plaine, Minn., April 23.

Working in partnership with the Belle Plaine Park Board and City Council, Belle Plaine Chamber of Commerce, Belle Plaine High School Future Farmers of America, Project EverGreen and industry volunteers provided the materials and labor to repurpose and renovate 150,000 square feet of existing turf in Belle Plain’s Court Square Park into a six-hole disc golf course.

The green space’s renovations are valued at more than $4,000. The initiative included weed control and fertilization; aeration of the playing surface; installation of new plant material, including redosier dogwoods and burning bushes; and general clean-up of the green spaces at each of the facilities.

Minnesota green industry volunteers Genesis Coop, Town & Country Hardware, Turfco and Gardner & Gardner Communications supported the Court Square Park project.
