Improving Bloomington parks
Parks and Recreation has new and improved amenities rolling out as the summer season changes into fall. Several park improvement projects will be wrapping up soon:
Sunrise Park, 9401 Bloomington Ferry Road: Reconstruction of a basketball court and two tennis courts will be complete in late September. New dual striping on the tennis courts will accommodate pickleball as well as tennis.
Westwood Park, 3490 West 109th Street: The number of pickleball courts is increasing from three to eight. They will be dedicated for pickleball only. The existing tennis court will be repainted and striped for tennis and four additional pickleball courts. The projected completion date is Labor Day.
Valley View Playfield, 9000 Portland Avenue: New lighting is being added around six parking lots. The light installation will be completed later in the fall. A new picnic shelter is also being installed near the playground. Adult fitness with 8 – 10 pieces of equipment is being added. The basketball courts are being reconstructed and ball field improvements will be completed this fall.
Various parks will also see bleacher replacements.
