Can I bring any pets into Park 96? What about my bike or scooter?
Unfortunately, there are no pets of any kind allowed inside Park 96. For safety reasons, bikes, scooters, skateboards are also prohibited.

I love your disc golf course but I’m not a Parkland resident! How can I play?
Unfortunately, our disc golf course is for the exclusive use of Parkland residents and their invited guests. Occasionally, Park 96 will host public disc golf events that are open to the public — so that is your best opportunity! Public tournaments will be posted on our website and Facebook pages well in advance of the start date.
