And speaking of Chamizal ...
On March 30, permanent lines were painted for four pickleball courts under the shade structure at Chamizal. A big shout out to our paint team: Sandy McDermott, Ben Avalos, Dow Farley, Adrian Dante, Julio Gutierrez, Art Dominguez, Rafa Gonzalez, and Andre Muldrow. The total shade coverage and solid wall offer good protection from sun and wind.

Paul Harvey Park has pickleball lines!
Players need to provide their own nets, and there is tennis traffic on these dual-purpose courts, but this is an important addition to our westside options (near Sunland Park).
