Dickeyville Park to See Massive Improvements Over Next Several Years
A new splashpad, updated playground equipment, and a pickleball court are among some of the significant upgrades coming to Dickeyville Park over the next several years.
As reported by the "Telegraph Herald," community leaders in Dickeyville, WI are working to secure $250,000 for several stages of improvements to the park. The first phase is expected to end later this month with a celebration in the works.
A conceptual rendering of the park has recently been posted, and it looks awesome! In addition to an all-new splashpad, basketball and pickleball courts are included in the plan as well. A second baseball field could be added down the road as well.
The Many Planned Phases for Dickeyville Park:
Phase one includes converting the tennis courts in the park into one full-size basketball court in conjunction with four pickleball courts. Pickleball is one of the fastest growing sports in America and has been for the last couple of years. The City of Dyersville just added a pickleball court to Candy Cane Park around Memorial Day. Improvements are on track to be completed by July 1st.
Phase two is all about the splashpad, with the goal for it to open in time for next summer. A splashpad could prove to be the most worthwhile addition to the park because it has the potential to draw folks from neighboring towns. Dickeyville would be one of the only towns in the area with its own mini-waterpark.
Phase three is still in development at this time, but it could bring a second baseball field.
No Tax Increases for Residents:
A timetable for all the improvements to be finished hasn't been concretized at this time. The good news, however, is that all of this comes with no tax increases for area residents. The upgrades will be entirely funded by donations and grants the Dickeyville Park Foundation receives.
This is one major step in continuing to grow the Wisconsin town. And this news shows the plans are off to a promising start!
