Pickleball courts may be open within the next few weeks but the playground in Memorial Park is slightly delayed due to supply chain issues

Parks and Recreation Director Brad Dennehy told Milford City Council at a recent meeting that the new pickleball courts located in Memorial Park should be open in the next few weeks. The department is currently sealcoating the surface before striping them.

“We just put new pervious parking spots in and we continue to move forward with our playground. They’re in the process at the moment of bringing in all additional stone in order for the rubber surfacing to go down on top of that, and just one other highlight Councilman Baer you’ll be pleased to know a bit our new fence and pedestrian gate installed on Fisher Avenue so I know you had several calls from constituents of wanting a pedestrian gate so that just got finished up today.”

Dennehy explained that the pickleball nets were in stock and as soon as the striping was completed, they would be installed. He expected the courts to be open to the public in the next three to four weeks.

“I think the playground is going to take a little bit longer with that with the supply chain with the rubber surfacing, but we are hoping to get the pickleball courts open up as soon as possible,’ Dennehy said.

Councilman Brian Baer asked about the progress on the public restroom.

“This week we intend to place the order for the restroom. The final preparation we had to do was get the site contractor on board and we finally did that. So, the restrooms are about a six month lead time,” Mike Svaby, Director of Public Works, said. “So, we’ll place the order this week. And we’ll time the site contractor up just right. Once the restroom is dropped in place, the concrete will go around, and we’re looking at about seven months or so from today, tentatively, to get everything in place.”
