Chester's disc golf to open soon
One of Chester’s most historic parks will soon get a big upgrade, much in part to the efforts of a young resident.
Last year, Jarrett James, then a senior at Chester High School, visited the Chester Parks and Recreation Committee meeting to present his vision for a disc golf course at Cole Memorial Park.
Impressed with his presentation, committee members got to work securing funding and materials for the park.
James walked the park several times, designing the layout for what would become the course.
While the course is not yet complete, the remaining baskets are scheduled to be hung prior to April 1, if weather allows. The course was built by city employees.
