Following the ceremony, the public will have a chance to learn how to play disc golf from the Saint John Disc Golf Association, and equipment, practice areas and the new course will be available for use. The first 50 people to attend will receive a free disc.
The new score clock will be officially turned on at 11:00 a.m. at the Emera turf field and a free BBQ, music, entertainment, and activities such as face-painting are being provided as part of the first Passport to Parks event of the summer, with prizes to be given out throughout the day.
