Construction of the new tennis and pickle ball courts at Lion’s Park is complete and the courts are now open to the public.
The tennis court project has been funded 50% by the Town of Mauston and 50% by the Mauston School District, and the district will use the courts for summer recreation programs and for school competitions. The project cost $ 124,684.31.
“I want to thank the Mauston School District for helping fund this project,” said Mauston Parks Director Jordan Wilke. “I hope many good years of tennis here.”
Each of the six courts has a new surface, with new posts installed on each court. Several of the courts are painted to accommodate both pickle ball and tennis, with equipment available at the library’s pickle ball box office for those who do not have their own equipment. New lighting has been installed to allow nighttime play.
The project is part of a nearly complete overhaul of Lion’s Park, as the city plans to replace the majority of the park’s play equipment by spring 2022. Some of the newer equipment, such as the volleyball courts , swings and paddling pool are not replaced.
