Logger's Park Sports Complex feels a lot like a kids' summer camp?except that people of all ages are welcome. During the summer, outdoor diamonds and courts host softball, volleyball, and kickball leagues for men's, women's, and coed-teams. Artful landscaping characterizes the 18-hole miniature golf course, where three streams and two waterfalls provide a tranquil, babbling soundtrack and a convenient spot for a celebratory hole-in-one cannonball. Meanwhile, ample patio space provides shelter for family gatherings or parties, and Logger's Pub & Pizza solves hunger dilemmas with a menu that includes burgers, wings, and pizzas.
Every Friday night at The Hairy Lemon Irish Pub, the menu expands?cooks add six seafood entrees to their usual repertoire.

But the menu is just as hearty the rest of the week, as cooks craft pub classics ranging from wonton-wrapped mozzarella sticks to reuben sandwiches heaped with sauerkraut. By way of entertainment, the cozy eatery hosts tournaments of the popular Sheepshead card game on the first and third Saturday of the month.
