Not sure if this is the right place to post this, I can move it if needed.

Summit Park is the new park that Blue Ash is adding by converting the old Municipal Airport.

I sent an email today to the email address registered at the Summit Park page for the City of Blue Ash parks summitpark@blueash.com . I asked if there were any known plans to add disc golf to the park. Here is the response:

Thank you for reaching out. You are correct, there will be a large portion of the park purposefully left for green space for less “polished” amenities such as walking trails, ponds, etc. We are also looking at many other amenities that could be a good fit into this area and disc golf is in fact on the radar, however since the park is being phased in and the focus is on the main social area of the park first, that area will receive attention towards the ending of the construction project… and the entire project is scheduled to be multiple years. 
 Now, I love the fact that you provided that map. I actually met with someone not long ago that was on the same track as you and wanted to lobby for the same cause. They mentioned the “hole” as seen on the map, but never provided it, so thank you for sending this along. This makes the feasibility that much more possible given the implied need.

So, in short to answer your question…. Would disc golf be a great amenity of the park; yes, but it will be some time before we have the opportunity to look into it as a feature. It is definitely on the radar though!


So it sounds like this may be something of a possibility for the park here in Blue Ash, but another 1-2 years in the future.. We need to keep the right people aware that there is a demand for a course to be built. I mentioned in my email about a "hole" in the NorthEast corridor of Cincinnati and this would be a great solution.

You can see a set of conceptual drawings of the park here:www.msaarch.com/portfolio/msa-sport/city-of-blue-ash-summit-park Look at all of the space down the east side of the property!

I drove by the blue ash airport tonight and wondered about a disc course there as well.   Here I find that several others have had the same idea and contacted them about it.    Glad to hear that they are on the ball and others are requesting a course.   So did you send them a map of a proposed course and if so can you post it?    I am excited and hope they can get a course there in a couple years.    It could easily be an 18 hole.
