Sports Courts Renovation Details
In one week, Lakesiders will come together as a community to raise money to renovate the basketball, sand volleyball and multi-purpose courts in Bettinger Park. Your support on or before #GivingTuesday (Nov. 27) will…

  • Add new lighting and bury electrical lines
  • Resurface, rotate and expand the current basketball court to include multiple court configurations and 6 basketball hoops
  • Provide better drainage at the sand volleyball court and add new sand, rubber curb edging and a step down into the court to contain the sand
  • Install a new surface and 2 basketball hoops at the multi-purpose court, which sits west of the sand volleyball court
  • Plant a rain garden to the west of the multi-purpose court for deep-rooted plants to consume the natural water and rain runoff
  • Add new landscaping

How Can I Help?
These upgrades will provide a place for your children and grandchildren to play, make new friends and participate in sports clinics to stay active and teach the value of teamwork. Thank you for making a difference.
