Mono College Park’s New Pickleball Courts: A Community Victory

Mono College Park’s New Pickleball Courts: On a momentous occasion marking the evolution of recreational amenities in Mono, Ontario, the town recently celebrated the inauguration of six state-of-the-art pickleball courts. Amidst a backdrop of enthusiasm and camaraderie, distinguished guests, including Dufferin-Caledon MPP Sylvia Jones, Mono Mayor John Creelman, and Mono CAO Mike Dunmore, joined by a cohort of eager pickleball enthusiasts, gathered at Mono College Park for a symbolic ribbon-cutting-ceremony.

The newly unveiled courts, equipped with essential features such as nets, posts, fencing, a windbreak, and LED lighting, stand as a testament to Mono’s commitment to fostering a vibrant and inclusive community space. A significant accelerator for this transformative project was the allocation of a $150,000 capital grant from the esteemed Ontario Trillium Foundation (OTF), highlighting the foundation’s steadfast support for initiatives aimed at enhancing community well-being.
