Pleasant Valley Recreation and Park District (PVRPD) has approved $1,400,000 for a pickleball complex to be located at Freedom Park at the former swimming pool area.
The Freedom Park Pickleball Complex is expected to cost more than the budgeted amount although the construction bids are not in. The plans have been divided into several phases as the budget allows. Look for details on the PVRPD Freedom Park page to learn more about project. Scroll down to the photos at the bottom of the page to see the plans and phases.
Camarillo Pickleball Association, a non-profit, is working to bridge the budget shortfall through fundraising efforts in hopes of building additional courts during the initial construction. Proceeds from tournaments and special events have been allocated towards the Freedom Park Pickleball Complex Campaign (FPPCC). Funds from sponsors of the annual Cam Slam Tournament held in July have also been allocated to the new court and donations are now coming in.
The Camarilo Acorn published an article about the Freedom Park Pickleball Project on July 16, 2022.
