Plan Your Visit

30 Minutes

2 Hours

Try out the 18-hole disc golf course and take in scenic lake views, especially at hole #17, where you can throw your disc off a cliff to reach the basket! Don't have your own discs? No problem! Rentals are available through October at the entrance gate. A daily pass ($6) is required.

All Day

It’s easy to spend a full day enjoying everything Bryant Lake Regional Park has to offer. Bring your fishing pole and start off your day by dropping a line from the fishing pier. Keep your catch in a cooler and then head to the play area to burn off some energy. The play area features a series of nets to climb on and a toddler area for younger kids to enjoy. 

Pack a picnic lunch or visit the concession stand for a treat! Challenge your friends to a round of disc golf! Day passes are available for purchase. Need discs? No problem! Bryant Lake has discs available to rent for $5.
