Continuing Studies Instructor Haman Cross III partnered with the Lincoln Park Zoo and local artists like Lecturer Eric Hotchkiss to restore the Douglass 18 miniature golf course in Douglass Park. Three years in the making, the project also involved young local artists on the design team. The Douglass 18 aims to teach the community about local birds and nature conservation. “I’m looking out, and I’m seeing a diverse group of people. White, Black, Brown. I don’t know their backgrounds. But to see them in a space, sharing the space ... everybody’s having a good time,” Cross shared. The Douglass 18 miniature golf course opened to the public last month.
