Mini-Golf at the Carousel

October 7, 2010

Dear readers and parks/rec enthusiasts,

I’d like to draw your attention to a miniature golf course that is planned behind the Carousel building on King Street in Pottstown. I’d heard about the mini-golf in my conversations with Eileen Schlegel, Director of Parks and Recreation. The Carousel building will be the home of the Parks & Rec. Department when completed. Apparently, this was all discussed at the Borough’s Committee-of-the-Whole meeting last night, and that’s why I thought I’d mention it now.

Through an article over at The Pottstown Post, I found this YouTube link, which shows the proposed site and some wonderful renderings. It shows a layout for the mini-golf.

This whole project – right across from Memorial Park – really could do wonders to make the King St. gateway more attractive. I know people have been kind of disappointed so far. The Carousel may not be the be-all and end-all of revitalization, but it doesn’t have to be; it just has to pull its own weight. When it does that, it will be an excellent addition to the recreational opportunities that Pottstown offers, a real draw for visitors and a major visual improvement to that gateway.

The article that I came across is actually about a Carousel ornament that’s now for sale for $20. Check out the video, support the effort and get started on your holiday shopping now!

    Thank you for your informative post on the carousel and minigolf project. I sincerely hope that the location does revitalize your area as you mentioned. I would like to learn more about the project, especially the mini golf portion of the project. Please note that my company “Krazie-Golf” designs and builds miniature golf courses, and would be very interested in speaking with someone regarding the mini golf portion of the project. I was hoping that you could review a recent and similar project in our main photo gallery here: http://gallery.me.com/giocustomcreations#100081&bgcolor=black&view=grid I am interested in contacting the powers that be and see if there is something that we can do to help with your project. Is there something that we can do to help?

    Sincerely,
    Giovanni Calabrese

      Hi, Mr. Calabrese —

      Thanks for your note. Your projects look like fun! I’m not sure of the exact status of the mini-golf project. I imagine it would go out to bid when the funding is in place. You should contact the Pottstown Borough Manager – Jason Bobst – to find out more. His number at Borough Hall is 610-970-6500.

      Sue
