You see a sign labeled (rather loudly) “GOLF SNACKS” on pier 25. At first glance, you wonder if you’ve just found a place that sells golf-themed snacks, or even mini golf balls that can be both ‘putted’ and ingested? Let’s be honest, it’s a little vague – but I’ll help you break down Pier 25’s new, playful makeover.
Location: N. Moore Street
Target Audience: the more active users of the west side waterfront
Scope: Outdoor playing grounds including an actual playground, basketball courts, beach volleyball courts (sand – check), and a legit 18 hole miniature golf course
My Take: It is legit, I went, I played (yes, all 18 holes). While I may have been slightly under par, their renovation is definitely up to par, and a trip to Pier 25 will take you right back to a night out in your childhood.
So that’s settled – it’s a date, right? Now all you’ve got to choose – the color of your ball. Such hard decisions we must endure.
