New Pickleball Courts Now Completed at
Lions Legend II Park

The Department of Public Works has completed a conversion of an existing tennis court at Lions Legend II Park into four dedicated Pickleball courts.  An adjacent tennis court with a backboard still remains for those who wish to play tennis.  Bringing Pickleball to Franklin was a grassroots effort led by residents working with the City's Parks Commission.
