Nine new pickleball courts are now open for public use at Veterans Memorial Park, located at 2700 Northview Dr. in Dubuque. The courts are available on a first-come, first-served basis for all ages to enjoy.

Four existing tennis courts at Veterans Memorial Park were converted into nine dedicated pickleball courts. The cost of this project was approximately $100,000 and was funded by the City of Dubuque’s capital improvement program and a grant from the Grant Wood Loop Parks to People Initiative. A citizen group of pickleball enthusiasts were heavily involved in the process to gain funding for the project, design and now promotion of the courts and pickleball as a sport.
The water has been turned off in City of Dubuque parks (restrooms, drinking fountains, pavilions, etc.) but the parks are open and accessible to visitors year-round.
