Q. As an avid disc golfer and part of the disc golf community, I’ve been patiently waiting for Arrowhead Park to open and to play the new 18 hole disc golf course. I called the Parks Department several times and was told they would open in April 2012. Then I was told May 2012. Here we are in June and absolutely no updates. Could you please help us find out why this park is so far behind schedule?

A. According to Jim McDaniel, New Hanover County Director for Parks, Garden and Senior Resources, Arrowhead Park will open June 27. He cited delays with power lines, paving and bad weather for pushing the opening back.

“We had quite a few pieces of the puzzle that had to fall into place,’’ he said. “Despite the setbacks, the rain helped with the sodding and seeding. It was not just one thing that set us back. The park had been in disrepair because of vandalism and things like that. It is a nice park now.’’
