Parkside Diner History
Whispering Pines Miniature Golf
Since 1997, the Papas brothers also own and operate Parkside’s Whispering Pines Miniature Golf, recently renovated in 2012, located right next door. The miniature golf is a seasonal operation and is open throughout the spring, summer and fall. Parkside’s Whispering Pines is also listed on the National Register of Historic Places as the oldest miniature golf course in the United States having opened in 1930. The course was built from fossil stone purchased from out west during the Miniature Golf boom. The course has a very unique design, which has entertained generations for decades. Stop by for some fun and putt 18 holes while getting a glimpse of history. Please call diner for hours as they change during the season.
Our goals at the Parkside are to provide our customers with the best service possible and to serve a hearty satisfying meal. Word of mouth is the best advertising possible and we hope you enjoyed your meal with us and tell all your friends about the Parkside Diner. We thank you for your patronage and hope to serve you again soon.
Jim and Greg Papas
