Static Archery Range

The Static Archery Range consists of five lanes of varying distances. The accessible static archery range has concrete walkways that stretch the length of each lane for easy arrow retrieval.

Axe Throwing

Try your strength in the target sport of axe throwing, where players throw axes at a bullseye-marked wooden target (just like a bullseye in darts) and the objective is to hit dead center. Axe throwing originated from lumberjack competitions and is growing in popularity as a friendly and competitive activity.
