Walker Art Center's popular artist-designed mini golf course returns for summer 2014 with fresh novelties (chickens, snake, gumball machine) and old favorites from past seasons including a giant maze, a gopher hole, a watering can and garden gnomes playing foosball. Plan for wait times due to course popularity.

The course will be open daily from May 22  through Sept. 1. Hours: 10 a.m. - 8 p.m. Sunday - Wednesday; 10 a.m. - 10 p.m. Thursday - Saturday. Closed June 20 - 22 for Rock the Garden concerts.

Tickets for a full 18 hole round are $18 adults, $15 students, $13.50 ages 7 - 12. For a half-course of 9 holes, fees are $12 adults, $10 students, $9 ages 7 - 12. All tickets include free admission to Walker's galleries. Excellent snacks are for sale at the Dog House cart adjacent to the course.

Call 612-375-7697 for weather-related closing information.
