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 matched that amount to complete the $150,000 project.
Concrete installation began in May 2018. 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 some space between the two fenced court areas, with plans to install at least two benches and a trash receptacle on this concrete patio. The location of the courts is south of the road leading into Boulder Beach, and east of the restrooms.
Friends of Lake Panorama will continue to solicit donations to help pay for additional expenses such as benches and signage. While donations of all sizes are important, only donors of $500 or more can be recognized on the Friends website. A sign listing these larger donors will be installed near the courts. T0 be recognized on the donor sign, contributions of $500 or more must be received by July 12, 2018.
