Each of the six courts has a new surface, with new posts installed on each court. Several of the courts are painted to accommodate both pickle ball and tennis, with equipment available at the pickle ball cash desk at the library for those without their own equipment. New lighting has been installed to allow night play.

The project is part of a near-total overhaul of Lion’s Park, as the city plans to replace the majority of the park’s playground equipment by spring 2022. Some of the newer equipment, such as the volleyball courts , swings and splash pad are not replaced.
