Pickleball and tennis court design at Burchard Park

Pickleball and tennis racquets

The Recreation Master Plan Steering Committee is working with Activitas, Inc. on the design of pickleball courts and demolition and reconstruction of tennis and basketball courts at Burchard Park.  

Six pickleball courts are being planned near the southwest parking area. Several changes have been made to the concept shared last fall.  Design is being funded  through the Community Preservation Act.

In addition to pickleball, the RMPSC is proposing a demolition and reconstruction of the existing tennis and basketball courts as part of the same project.  The courts have experienced excessive surface and foundational cracking. The damage is too severe  to be remedied through a standard re-surfacing and can become hazardous in the near future. Doing both at the same time will result in substantial cost savings for the town. Design for this portion is being funded through the Recreation Department enterprise fund.

You can view the current draft of the plan here

A public input meeting will take place Wednesday, January 18 at 7 PM via Zoom remote platform, with log-in information available on the agenda. Please consider attending and providing your feedback.
