Sports Courts Renovation Details

Posted on November 20, 2018

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 fund the following renovations:

  • New lighting and buried electrical lines
  • Resurfacing, rotating and expanding the current main basketball court to include multiple court configurations and six basketball hoops.
  • Better drainage for a new sand volleyball court that will utilize a rubberized perimeter curb to ensure safety and provide sand containment
  • Installing a new surface and two new basketball hoops at the multi-purpose court, which sits west of the sand volleyball court
  • Planting a rain garden to the west of the courts as part of a sustainability initiative with deep-rooted plants to consume the natural water and rain runoff
  • New landscaping and irrigation system



View the Bettinger Park Site Plan. 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.

  • Make an online donation any time before or on Tuesday, Nov. 27. (The online donation page maybe running slowly today. If you experience problems, please call to make your donation anytime Tuesday evening.)
