NLR to break ground on pickleball courts

North Little Rock Parks and Recreation Department is holding a Groundbreaking Ceremony at 11 a.m. Tuesday, Jan. 24 at 12 Funland Drive in Burns Park for new pickleball courts. 

The 12-court, open facility will be free of charge for all ages and a great addition to the city’s recreation opportunities. “Pickleball is the fastest growing sport in the world, and we are excited about a facility for the growing number of youth and adults involved,” said Steve Shields, director of Parks and Recreation. Construction on the new courts will begin in February and is scheduled to be completed in June.
