Possible new activity at Modern Woodmen Park

Modern Woodmen owner wants to bring miniature golf to park

DAVENPORT, Iowa - There could soon be a new activity for fans to enjoy at Modern Woodmen Park. 
 
The owner of the Quad Cities River Bandits Dave Heller says he wants to offer miniature golf at the park.
 
He says the grounds would be located around the Ferris wheel. 
 
Heller hopes to pay for the activity with his own funds and not use city money, but needs the Levee Commission's approval to get the ball rolling. 
 
He hopes it will keep young fans coming to the park.
 
"If we can give them wonderfully fun experiences like mini golf and the double-decker carousel and the Ferris wheel at the ballpark they'll associate a good time with the ballpark and they'll want to come back again and again and that's how we'll build the next generation of baseball fans," Heller said. 
 
Heller hopes to have the project all approved by Labor Day, and opened by May of next year.
