Pickleball courts in Des Pres Park to close for two weeks for resurfacing
Three pickleball courts that are heavily used in Des Pres Park will be receiving a facelift that will require a two-week closure starting August 30, officials with Louisville Parks and Recreation announced today.
The three pickleball courts in Des Pres Park, located on Lowe Road just off Taylorsville Road, are extremely popular, according to Jason Canuel, assistant director of infrastructure and engineering.
“The excessive amount of play has worn the surface to a point where a new acrylic surface is necessary,” Canuel said. The courts are expected to be back open for play on September 13.
