Project EverGreen and its partners transformed 150,000 sq. ft. of Minnesota’s Belle Plain’s Court Square Park into a six-hole disk golf course.

Project EverGreen worked with the Belle Plaine Park Board and City Council, Belle Plaine Chamber of Commerce and Belle Plaine High School FFA.

The transformed green space renovations, which are valued at more than $4,000, will provide a outdoor recreation option. The initiative included weed control and fertilization; aeration of the playing surface; installation of new plant material including red osier dogwoods and burning bushes; and general clean-up of the green spaces at each of the facilities.

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