WAITE PARK -- Waite Park residents will be albe to play Pickleball games as soon as this fall.

During last (Monday) night's city council meeting, the council approved plans for six pickleball courts to be built at River's Edge Park.

Waite Park Public Works Director Bill Schluenz says with the approval they will now begin collecting bids for the project, which is estimated at $470,000.

The courts are part of Phase 3 of improvements to the park and will be built just south of the Splash Pad at the corner of 3rd Street and 10th Avenue.

Schluenz says they have a bid date of June 30th and if all goes well construction will begin this summer with completion expected by September or October.
