  • Basketball Courts at Willow Park CLOSED indefinitely

    Basketball Courts at Willow Park CLOSED indefinitely

    I apologize for the inconvenience to those who use the courts responsibly! However, the courts have been a continual source of problems for the City, as some participants are fighting, swearing, littering, and other inappropriate behavior. The result has been the need for a continual police presence during Lakeview High School home tennis matches. Now, the City is experiencing ongoing destruction and theft in the restrooms. We are seeing paper towels stuffed into the toilets, flooding of the restrooms, the removal of soap dispensers and refills, and other random acts of vandalism. This has resulted in very costly expenditures that the City can no longer bear. At this point, the restrooms will be minimally stocked. There will be no paper towels, a small dollar store soap container, and one roll of toilet paper. We believe that the culprits are utilizing the basketball courts, and by eliminating the ability to play basketball, the problem will correct itself.     ~ Mayor Deidre Petrosky
