Stephens Park Renovation Heralded By Ribbon-Cutting Ceremony

The Town of Brownsburg’s pickleball community will celebrate the long-awaited opening of six new courts at Stephens Park (605 Stephen Dr.) during a ribbon-cutting ceremony on Sat., May 8 at 10 a.m.

Pickleball is one of the fastest growing sports in the United States. A hybrid of tennis and table tennis, pickleball is played on a netted court. The sport is enjoyed by players of all ages.

“We’ve had requests for additional pickleball courts from our community for years, which is why we’re so pleased to provide this space for players,” said Brownsburg Parks Director Travis Tranbarger. Currently, there are two pickleball courts at Arbuckle Acres Park (200 N. Green St.).

Other new features on the 3.2-acre park include a variety of stationary exercise equipment and a new universal playground.

“One of our goals is ensuring that as we add and upgrade playground equipment to our parks it is accessible to children of all needs,” said Tranbarger. “While Stephens Park was once a quiet neighborhood park, I believe it will see new life thanks to these play features.”

Improvements to the park were funded by a park district bond.

Visitors also will find year-round restrooms and a walking trail along the border of the park. Additional features, including a natural playground made up of logs and rocks, will be added in future.
