[ARCHIVED] Directors Approve Athletic Court Improvements

Sport Court Sorrento - Blind Bay Park

Thursday, February 18, 2021Sport Court Sorrento - Blind Bay Park

Tennis, pickleball, and basketball enthusiasts will be getting an upgraded place to play at the Sorrento-Blind Bay Community Park.

Columbia Shuswap Regional District (CSRD) Directors approved the expenditure of up to $105,000 to resurface the asphalt of the multi-use playing court and replace chain-link fencing at their regular Board meeting held Thursday, February 18.

The court surface is currently in a poor state of repair, making it nearly unusable for sports activities. Plans are to resurface the entire court area with new asphalt, paint new lines for tennis, pickleball, and basketball, and to install sleeves for various sports net and hoops. The original chain-link fencing may need to be replaced and is included in the budget, if necessary.

The Sorrento-Blind Bay Community Park, located at 2670 Davidson Road in Sorrento, is one of the most popular parks within the CSRD. The 12.3-acre site also includes a soccer field, baseball diamonds, water spray park, and playground.

The funding for the project is coming from the Electoral Area C Community Works Fund, which will reduce the impacts to taxation and capital reserves.

With the Board's approval, CSRD staff will move forward with the project, with completion planned for later this year.
