Orange safety fencing can be seen at the Family Activity Center portion of the park, near Wegmans Playground.
Justin Sayles, Communications Director with the Onondaga County Executive’s office, said pickleball courts are being built in this spot.
He said there will be multiple courts, costing about $400,000. He said funding for the pickleball courts was approved in the County’s budget.
