New pickleball courts coming soon to Spring Valley

Courts to go in Kirby Park

Newton City Council wants feedback from pickle ball players before deciding where to construct the new pickle ball courts promised in the $1.6 million park bond.

The Spring Valley City Council on Monday approved of the shift of $55,000 from the general fund to the recreation fund to cover the cost of the new pickleball courts being built at Kirby Park.

Alderman Dave Pellegrini said the concrete has been poured and that the city is waiting on a bid for the painting. The courts should be “in business in a month,” he said.

Pellegrini and Thompson also commended the park district board for a job well done during the recent Summer Fest celebration.
