Master plan for Mulligan’s Hollow includes pickleball

Grand Haven officials are closer to being able to approve a set of plans that would help guide improvements at the Mulligan's Hollow Recreation Area. The Johnson-Hill Land Ethics Studio of Ann Arbor is dividing the city park's master plan into three parts, said Grand Haven Special Project Manager Julie Beaton. Officials began working on updating the master plan for the area earlier this year in conjunction with water plant construction projects that are taking place there.

According to Beaton, the new master plan will include a section of ideas that can be done within the next two years, projects that can take place within the next 2-5 years, and the final section includes items that are more long-term goals with no definitive time frame.

“The short-term goals include an east-west pedestrian walkway,” Beaton said.

Pickleball enthusiasts will also have a place to play, Beaton said.

“One way or another, pickleball will end up where the tennis courts are now,” she said.

However, Beaton is unsure of the exact combination of tennis and pickleball courts.

The next step in the process, Beaton said, involves sending the plan to the city’s Parks and Recreation Board for its recommendation to City Council.
