Rifle Camp Park disc course is ‘a dead issue,’ Passaic County says

Statement by Ann Schnakenberg,
Executive Director of the Save Rifle Camp Park Coalition

“The events unfolding in connection to Rifle Camp Park, our local Passaic County Park here in New Jersey, are indicative of a state and national dilemma. Our story brings the current assault by government upon our state and national parks such as New Jersey’s Liberty State Park and Utah’s Bears Ears National Monument home to an even more local county level. Public access to and protection of natural open space is currently under siege across all fronts. Steps need to be taken by elected officials to address these situations before it’s too late.”


Passaic County backs away from disc golf course at Rifle Camp Park

*** NEW LOCATION FOUND for Disc Golf Course! ***

Preakness Valley Golf Course, owned by Passaic County-
377 acres dedicated to Sports!

We are pleased to announce that we have found a new location for the proposed Disc Golf Course for Passaic County! Preakness Valley Golf Course, 209 Totowa Rd, Wayne, NJ, is the largest park in Passaic County’s park system in lower Passaic County. A recommendation by the disc golf community is that border areas of operating golf courses could be used for new disc golf installations- And Passaic County has TWO golf courses on this property!
Installation of the new disc golf course could be immediate, and would have real benefits for disc golfers-
See our reasons why this is the right location!

See “Theodore Wirth Disc Golf Course” video,
showing disc golf played on a traditional golf course in perfect harmony.

ready to receive disc golfers:
