Sports Courts Project

After a year of successful fundraising, the construction of new sports courts at Boulder Beach got underway in September 2017 when LPA maintenance staff handled site preparation. Friends of Lake Panorama raised $75,000, and the Lake Panorama Association provided another $100,000 to complete the project.

Concrete installation began in May 2018, and the courts opened for play in June. The courts include one regulation tennis court, with two regulation pickleball courts adjacent. These three courts are within the same fenced enclosure.

A separate fence surrounds a basketball court that is slightly smaller than regulation size. It features two half courts with Goalsetter MVP basketball systems. All courts feature PowerGame sport surface tiles. 

There is a concrete patio between the two fenced court areas. Two memorial benches and a trash receptacle have been installed on the patio for use by players and spectators. The location of the courts is south of the road leading into Boulder Beach, and east of the restrooms.

While donations of all sizes were vital to making these courts possible, only donors of $500 or more are recognized on the Friends website. A sign listing these larger donors is located on the basketball court fence.
