DENISON, Texas (KTEN) — There are some new upgrades on the way to a Denison park.

Denison Parks and Recreation is partnering with Simmons Bank to bring improvements to the pickleball court at The Backyard at Waterloo Lake Regional Park.

The funding will help to build a fence around the courts, which should help keep the growing number of pickleball players on the court instead of chasing the ball.

These pickleball courts were opened in The Backyard last March, and construction on the new fence is expected to start in late spring.
