Centennial news in a hurry
Colorado Journey gets new turf
Both courses at South Suburban Parks and Recration’s Colorado Journey Mini Golf at Cornerstone Park now have new playing surfaces. Although the new turf won’t guarantee a better golf score, patrons will enjoy smooth greens, void of uneven wear and tear.
The turf has been replaced on 36 holes, as well as the putting green. Colorado Journey features famous Colorado landmarks, and is open Monday to Thursday from noon to 9 p.m., and weekends from 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. through May. Beginning June 1, the facility is open daily, 10 a.m. to 10 p.m., weather permitting.
Colorado Journey is located in Cornerstone Park on the corner of West Belleview Avenue and South Windermere Street. For more information, visit www.sspr.org or call 303-734-1083.
