Reopen the Westchester Lagoon disc golf course

The Anchorage Assembly

Reopen the Westchester Lagoon disc golf course

      Anchorage, AK

The Westchester Lagoon disc golf couse provides a free, fun, safe and hugely popular outdoor activity for Anchorage residents and visitors. Closing the course because of the actions a few unfairly punishes the vast majority of people who use the course respectfully and responsibly.

      As of this moment we're up to 1061 signatures supporting reopening our course. I'm honestly bowled over by the response.

      As promised, I testified at the Anchorage Assembly last night with the goal of representing everybody who signed the petition. I think it was well received and I want to bring everybody up to speed. First, the Muni has issued a press release on the closure and I would strongly suggest that everybody interested in this issue read it. It's located here:

      http://www.muni.org/departments/parks/pages/westchester.aspx

      Also, Lindsey Whitt is the point of contact on this issue for the Muni. Her phone number is 907-433-9543 and she's reading the email coming to parks@muni.org. She's very open to input, so don't hesitate to contact her.

      If you want to participate in the ongoing effort to reopen the course please like the newly created Westchester Disc Golf Facebook page. We can continue the discussion there.

      Thanks for all the amazing support!

      Disc golf is a great FREE activity that allows me to enjoy the few nice days there are outside breathing fresh air.

      I am signing because I love the disc golf course at Westchester Lagoon. It is one of my favorite pass times in the summer...

      When I grew up in Anchorage and went to West High School, that was one of my favorite places to hang out and frolf. If I came home for a visit and couldn't play there, I would be so devastated.

      I grew up in Homer and have had several friends and family members settle in Anchorage-- the city should take advantage of every opportunity for outdoor activity. There were DiscGolf courses aplenty in my college town; it's such a fun way to spend an afternoon! DiscGolf is fun, good for you, good for families, and even if some people are abusing the course other users don't deserve to be punished for their bad behavior! Thanks for your consideration.

      its a simple hobby for me. walk down the street (alone) and throw some disks. listen to some music (ipod). walk back home. a great pastime (coming from the desert where they try to play...golf!)
