Eisenhower Park Mini-Golf Course and Batting Cage Summer Hours

Friday, 09 July 2010 00:00

The miniature-golf course and outdoor batting cage at Eisenhower Park are now operating under longer summer hours. The batting cage opens at 10 a.m. and closes at 9 p.m., with last tokens sold at 8:30 p.m., while the mini-golf course opens at 10 a.m. and sells the last round of golf at 9 p.m.

The batting cage includes nine individual stalls with three different speeds for baseball or softball. For baseball, speeds range from 40-45 mph, 60-65 mph and 80-85 mph. Since the system is “self-feeding” and the balls are collected automatically, patrons don’t need to waste time and energy collecting them and filling boxes or feeding a pitching machine, as is the case at some indoor facilities. The fee for the cage is $3 for 25 pitches.
