Lincoln Park Tennis Court Conversion

Updated: July 12, 2024

Summer 2024

Seattle Parks and Recreation has made great progress identifying another location to add another pickleball court to West Seattle and thus has decided to no longer pursue creating courts at Lincoln Park. Please stay tuned for information and plans about another location to be announced later this year.

The 2021-22 Outdoor Pickleball Study outlined three possible approaches to meet the growing demand for outdoor pickleball in Seattle: dual striping (immediate opportunity), converting existing tennis courts to pickleball only (mid-term), and constructing a new dedicated pickleball facility (long-term). 

Lincoln Park was considered as a potential location for dedicated courts in the 2021-2022 Outdoor Pickleball Plan. It was not included as one of the top candidates primarily due to size. For that study we were largely looking at locations that would be a larger lit complex of 8 or more courts. We also considered Lincoln Park as a possible pickleball location when doing engagement for removal of the tennis courts at Lowman Beach.

The main criteria used in selecting this court is that it does not conflict with tennis – in that the court has been unused and mainly used for storage – it meets geographic distribution, residential remoteness, and accessibility criteria.
