After a soft opening in fall 2023, a ribbon cutting was held at the Unity Park Pickleball Courts June 1.

The tennis courts at Unity Park were converted to pickleball courts after staff received requests from the community for more Pickleball courts and 80% of residents responded favorably to a survey, Highland Village Recreation Manager Andra Foreman said via email.

“Pickleball brings the community together and creates a sense of unity while promoting an active lifestyle,” Foreman said. “Players can socialize, meet new friends and build social connections."

City Council approved nearly $49,000 in funding for the conversion of the courts in the FY 2023-24 budget.
