The Rockford Park District continues to evolve with more features we told them we wanted.

In recent months, the Rockford park District has made some big changes. While most of the changes are being made to create much needed cashflow, some are things we told the Park District we wanted to see. This next project is a bit of both.

The old Skybox restaurant inside MercyHealth Indoor Sports Center has been gutted. Taking its place will be a brand new restaurant and bar with "Full Swing" golf simulators.

You'll be able to play over 80 different courses around the world on these simulators, according to mystateline.com.

And if you don't golf, there's over a dozen other games you can play on these simulators. You could say that golf just became a year-round sport in the Rockford area. The bar and restaurant, with 4 of these simulators, is expected to open in late Summer/early Fall.
