Unique Cool Weather Activities In La Quinta
Pickleball At Fritz Burns Park
If you’re looking for a fun (and free) way to enjoy the cooler weather, then head to Fritz Burns Park for some pickleball! There are 8 pickleball courts in the park, broken down into 2 sections, the East Courts (4) and the West Courts (4). The West Courts are designated for intermediate-expert players, while the East Courts are designated for beginner-intermediate players and are for a slower pace of play.
Bring your own pickleball paddle, a pickleball, workout shoes with grip on the bottom, and a water bottle. This sport really doesn’t require much to play!
