The Cedars of Green Haven, a winter disc golf course, debuts this winter.  The disc golf course is a full 18-hole course utilizing the elevated portion of the property on the west side. While the course offers a  challenging layout for the advanced level player, it is still enjoyable for the intermediate and novice players. Night and weekend disc golf is available through multiple leagues, as well as, free play.  Participants can enjoy delicious food and beverages at The Tavern at Green Haven during restaurant hours. The course is free to the public. For more information, call Public Services at 763-576-2980 or email Nickie Jenks, Recreation Manager at njenks@ci.anoka.mn.us
