Construction of New Pickleball Courts at Cunniff Park begins May 16

May 15, 2023

Update: Monday, May 15

All pickleball courts and the adjacent four tennis courts (south bank) at Danny Cunniff Park will be closed tomorrow, Tuesday, May 16, starting at 7am and through the remainder of the week for construction. 

To accommodate the growing demand for pickleball courts and to assess usage patterns, the Park District is converting four tennis courts at Danny Cunniff Park into ten new temporary pickleball courts. The new courts will be adjacent to the six existing pickleball courts, featuring heavy-duty portable nets and sound reduction screens on the surrounding fencing. Two banks of five pickleball courts will replace the existing tennis lines. The current tennis nets will separate the banks.  Construction of the new courts is expected to be completed by Memorial Day weekend.

“We are excited to add the new temporary courts at Larry Cunniff Park for the growing community of pickleball players,” said Robyn Zullo, Tennis Recreation Manager. “The temporary courts will allow us to assess the court layout and usage patterns over the upcoming season.”
