Pickleball Courts Coming to French Park
Construction will begin soon on three new Pickleball courts at French Park! City Council approved the construction bid at its meeting Tuesday night. The current basketball court will be converted into three dedicated pickleball courts, and the unused sand volleyball court will be converted into a 72’ x 40’ basketball area as part of the French Park Improvement Project.
What is Pickleball?
Pickleball is a paddle sport created for all ages and skill levels. The rules are simple, and the game is easy for beginners to learn, but can develop into a quick, fast-paced, competitive game for experienced players. The courts will be a turn-based, system, unless reserved by a permit, similar to tennis court reservations.
Based on community feedback and recreation needs, City staff reviewed potential areas for dedicated pickleball courts. French Park was identified as the best location due to the underutilized volleyball court.
