This morning, I was walking around one of our newest 55+ communities in Saratoga Springs, when I looked across the street at the new Baseball park that the city finished this year.
It looks nice, so I decided to walk through it. Turns out, it’s a lot more than a baseball park!
Not only does it have plenty of baseball diamonds and batting cages, but it’s got something for everyone. If you haven’t seen it yet, you gotta check it out. Its big and impressive with, you guessed it, Pickleball courts.
Pickleball for Saratoga Springs
What is pickleball
If you haven’t already heard, pickleball is the newest sport, especially among the retired crowd. It’s simple to learn, easy to play. Its kind of like a cross between tennis and ping pong. The courts are half the size of a tennis court, and ten times as popular.
Not only is it a fun game for all skill levels, but its great for all fitness levels also. With smaller courts and up to four players, you can make this as physically challenging, or as carefree as you like. It’s a great form of exercise, and an excellent way to socialize.
Where can I play it
If you are among the “in” crowd, or could easily see yourself picking up this new sport, our Saratoga Springs community is the one for you. As mentioned earlier, the new baseball park across the street, also has pickleball courts, eight of them!
The Villas At Legacy Farms is our newest 55+ community right there, and we just barely started closing our first homes in this amazing location. If you’ve ever wanted to start a team, or even a whole league, this would be the perfect community to learn the sport in.
Is pickleball not your thing?
No problem. Maybe you could care less about baseball also.
Didn’t I say that there was something in this new park for everyone? How do you like playing with your grandkids? Saratoga Springs spared no expense when it comes to your little ones, either. There’s plenty of playground here for them.
I’ve mentioned this in other articles also, but this community has so many things to do. The park is only the wonderful new tip of the iceberg. It provides lots of activities and sports, but if you want to get a little more adventurous, don’t forget that across the street to the East, you have Inlet Part, which takes you to the hot springs, where you can relax in nature’s hot tub.
Follow the path walking/biking trail to the north and you can enjoy the north end of Utah Lake, or the Jordan river on miles of paved trails.
There’s a whole lot of great things happening around you in Saratoga Springs. If you’ve ever considered moving into a community that makes you want to sing, this is the time and the place.
