Once the grounds of a naval hospital, this area of park is now home to four disc golf courses.
In 1942, the US Government acquired this land to build a navy training station. Over the next four years 293,381 men went through their boot training here. As you play the courses, you will see concrete pads, pillars, and old foundations. These remains, along with the water tower, are the "footprints" of the training station, and the most modern hospital facility in the Northwest at that time. Many of the long narrow fairways you will play were once part of the 7 1/2 miles of corridors that made up the extensive hospital complex.
