The Town of Brownsburg’s pickleball community will mark the long-awaited opening of six new courts at Stephens Park, 605 Stephen Drive, during a ribbon-cutting ceremony at 10 a.m. May 8.
Pickleball is one of the fastest growing sports in the United States. A hybrid of tennis and table tennis, pickleball is played on a netted court. Currently, there are two pickleball courts at Arbuckle Acres Park, 200 N. Green St.
Other new features on the 3.2-acre park include stationary exercise equipment and a new universal playground. Improvements to the park were funded by a park district bond.
Visitors also will find year-round restrooms and a walking trail along the border of the park. Additional features, including a natural playground made up of logs and rocks, will be added in future.
