New this year at historic Oaks Amusement Park is an 18-hole 'Adventure Golf Course'.
It took about three months to build this $400,000 miniature golf course, which overlooks the Willamette River just north of the Sellwood Bridge.
It evokes memories of deluxe putting centers in an earlier time - complete with mountains, waterfalls, a river stocked with fish running through it, landscaping, and a multiple holes per green.
'It's easy enough for the youngest kids - and still challenging for the oldest duffer,' smiled Oaks spokesperson Mary Beth Coffey. It's open during the amusement park's regular hours, and playing there costs $6 per person - or $3 for kids 5 and under.
Nonprofit Oaks Amusement Park is accessed at the foot of Spokane Street in Sellwood. For more information, call 503/233-5777, or go online to: www.oakspark.com .
