Sports Courts Project Gets Green Light

A new option is being considered for sports courts at Boulder Beach. Rather than installing two tennis courts with pickleball lines, the configuration shown here includes a single regulation tennis court with pickleball lines, plus two separate regulation pickleball courts. A final decision on the scope of the project will be made in late June.

The success of a May 6 Friends of Lake Panorama fundraiser set the wheels in motion to proceed with new sports courts at Boulder Beach. The Friends board had set a $20,000 goal for the Beach Ball, and came within $600 of making that happen. Direct donations in advance of the event stood at $32,150, so Beach Ball proceeds pushed fundraising past its initial $50,000 goal. An anonymous donor had already pledged another $25,000 for a basketball court.

Lake Panorama Fireworks Update

The Fourth of July holiday brings two types of fireworks to Lake Panorama.

The annual “Fire in the Sky” fireworks display sanctioned by the Lake Panorama Association, and put on by the Scheiring family, will be at dusk on Saturday, July 1. The fireworks will be set off from the traditional spot at Shady Beach. For safety reasons, the LPA Lake Patrol and the Iowa DNR require boats anchored during the display to have running lights on during the show.

Rain Garden Installation June 10

By Susan Thompson

A rain garden is a perennial flower garden strategically located to capture runoff from rain that falls on parking lots, roofs, driveways and yards. On Saturday, June 10, beginning at 9 a.m., a rain garden will be installed along the east side of the Panorama West clubhouse parking lot.

This project is sponsored by Friends of Lake Panorama, a nonprofit charity that is separate from the Lake Panorama Association. Funds raised by the charity are used for improvements at Lake Panorama’s two golf courses and three beaches.
