We are excited to announce the Shepard Park Renovation Project is scheduled to begin on August 1, 2022. The project includes renovating the 2 ballfields on the west side of the park and adding parking and 6 pickleball courts along the north side of Hackberry Road.
The paved trail section within the construction area will also be replaced and will be closed during construction. The pedestrian bridge connecting to Keller Park will still be open. Trail users are asked to safely use Hackberry Road for the stretch of trail under construction.
The portion of the disc golf course within Shepard Park will also be closed during construction. The Keller Park portion of the disc golf course will remain open.
The park district has dedicated use of the pickleball courts for Shepard students from noon to 4:00 pm for physical education and other school use on days school is in session. The pickleball courts will be open to the general public at all other times.
The anticipated completion time of the project is mid-September. Please watch our social media and website for project updates!
