Popularity for disc golf has grown immensely in Victoria.  Every time I cruise through Riverside Park I see more and more people playing this fast-growing sport.  The cool thing, is you don't have to buy your own equipment.  Thanks to a new disc rental service offered by Flow Paddle Co, a recreation equipment provider located within Riverside Park.

You can rent a bag of six discs for only $10. Residents are allowed to take the bag out of Riverside Park to play at different parks within Victoria County, and Flow Paddle Co can also deliver the bags to players.

 Disc golf is so popular in Victoria that the City of Victoria parks system has three disc golf locations. Two are in Riverside Park—the Riverside Disc Golf Course and the Fox’s Bend Disc Golf Course—and one in Ethel Lee Tracy Park.

Flow Paddle Co.in Riverside Park has 21 kayaks, a paddleboard, and bicycles for rental. The company also sells snow cones and loans basketballs and volleyballs for free with a $5 refundable deposit.

If you are a fan of disc golf, mark your calendars
