Sheridan Meadows Park Pickleball Courts

Challenge

The City of Eldridge wanted to enhance the free recreational opportunities available for city residents and visitors.

Solution

Pickleball is a fast growing sport for all ages that is played like tennis on a smaller court. Sheridan Meadows Park in Eldridge already served as a hub of outdoor recreation in Eldridge, with baseball, softball, and soccer fields, sand volleyball, a playground, outdoor exercise equipment area, and a paved shared use trail, and an underutilized corner of the park was the perfect spot for dedicated pickleball courts.

Six new asphalt pickleball courts, complete with colored surfacing and perimeter fence with windscreen, were constructed adjacent to the existing shared use trail and parking area at the northwest corner of the park.

Impact

Six much used new pickleball courts are available for residents and visitors to enjoy. The local pickleball club have already adopted the courts as a favored playing location, scheduling daily “group play” times that bring visitors into town to see all that Eldridge has to offer.
