Yep Hassles is quick becoming out go to place .. Great ice cream and golf..

I've yet to try their golf, however, it is usually packed when I'm there.
 
I used to like the mini golf at 24th, right off the boards.  I believe a guy used to have a bike rental place there as well, but he informed us a few years back that the mini-golf place was bought, and they were forcing him to leave at the end of the season.  I think this was around '04 or '05?

That was the name!
 
Forgot the name.  I remember they had the elephants, ect.  Tried to stop in at least once on vacation.  Fun times.

I never golfed there.  I caught it after finding out it was to be removed/demolished.  After I heard about more condos to be built there, I went over to see it (I wasn't even aware of it before).  It looked nice - I have video footage of it, from the street...
 
So the person that had Jungle Lagoon didn't own the property it sat on?

Not entirely certain, to be honest.  I can't say I've talked to the person who owned it.  I used to stay up the street from it, at The Lollipop.  And, at least once (sometimes more, depending) I'd stop in with cousins and play a round or two.  
 
My grandfather and I used to rent bicycles from a guy (wish I knew his name).  He had a spot under the boards at 24th, right next to the mini-golf.  At the time, the golf was closed, and I asked why.  He mentioned that condo owners bought the property and that they payed the Lagoon owners extra to close as soon as possible.  As for the guy with the bikes, he wasn't allowed to rent from there anymore.  The condo owners were willing, however, to let him finish the season out but the next year he up and moved to another location.
