Mitch Park may get basketball court

A basketball court is proposed for Mitch Park in the Gardnerville Ranchos.

A workshop is scheduled for 4-7 p.m. April 17 at the Gardnerville Ranchos General Improvement District office to discuss the court with residents as a possible amenity for the park, District Manager Bob Spellberg said.

The 20-acre park located behind the Gardnerville Ranchos Volunteer Fire Department on Mitch Drive is home to a 2-acre fishing pond and a bicycle pump track.

“It is informal and all informational,” Spellberg said. “It is a stop-by-and-talk with no formal presentation. People may also talk about what they want to see for the park in the future.”

Spellberg said the district might be considering a basketball court behind the fire station last fall when work was being completed on the pump track.

The park features a children’s playground, a climbing rock for smaller children, tennis courts, picnic tables and a gazebo.

There is also a dog-friendly walking and equestrian trail around the perimeter of the park.

Mitch Park is open dawn to dusk.
