Since the coronavirus first arrived on the shores of America, people from across the country – as well as around the world – have been struggling with a path of uncertainty and the merry-go-round creation of newly changing procedures.

With approval from the Bonita Bay Community Association Board of Directors, the tennis/pickleball facility at Riverwalk Park is in the process of a complete replacement.

PROJECT HIGHLIGHTS ▪ Demolition of existing court and fence (complete) ▪ Expand court size to accommodate four pickleball courts and one tennis court ▪ New asphalt court will be finished with Laykold Masters Gel Surface ▪ Installation of new 12′ fence to support e-noise abatement blanket ▪ Court lights will be converted to dark sky compliance standards ▪ Landscape for buffering
