On the ball with Park City Pickleball’s past, present and future

PARK CITY, Utah — The Park City Recreation master plan kicks off amidst continued requests for more pickleball access.

In March 2022, Park City Council supported the Recreation team’s launch of its master planning process. VCBO Architects was brought on board to assess, design, and guide future expansion of services at the Park City Municipal Athletic Recreation Center (MARC). The plan looked at fitness, aquatics, and the feasibility of dedicated pickleball spaces at the facility.

Through this initial process, it was determined that, in order to meet the long-term needs of the pickleball community, a standalone pickleball facility at the Park City Sports Complex located at Quinn’s Junction would be explored.

At February 2 City Council meeting, there was much support for the plan when presented by Recreation Director, Ken Fisher.  The other projects in the plan include the replacement and expansion of the aquatics facilities at the MARC and the replacement of the City Park Recreation Building, where Park City Summer Day Camp is held. The plan was endorsed by the Master Plan Steering Committee, the larger Recreation Advisory Board, and the Council.

Looking forward, the Recreation team will study and refine conceptual plans for facility expansion and present them to the Council for next steps.

Jessica Moran, MARC manager told TownLift, “Additional opportunities to play indoor pickleball will continue to be explored and implemented when possible.”
