Bordered by a hardwood forest, Tommy Schumpert Park features a baseball field and 3 large multi-use fields, a disc golf course, a large picnic shelter and restrooms. For runners and walkers, there's a paved loop within the park that encircles the dog park and connects to the Sterchi Hills Greenway. The greenway winds alongside the creek and through several neighborhoods before ending it's 2-mile stretch to Sterchi Hills Park. For your four-legged friends, the PetSafe Tommy Schumpert Dog Park is a big hit as they can romp and play unleashed with their pals. The woodsy 9-hole disc golf course will expand to 18-holes later in 2012.

Disc Golf: Nine baskets with two tee pads per hole on the front nine. Long pads with two baskets on each hole of the back nine.
