    We would like to enjoy the outdoor activities at Windmill Park. Seniors interest in Bocce and Pickleball has vastly increased as means for social interaction and low impact exercise.

    It is my understanding that one of items up for discussion this evening includes demolishing two tennis courts at Windmill park and replacing them with pickle ball courts. All eight courts are in good condition and all eight courts are used by both the public and Eric Kantor Tennis Academy every day. If two courts are removed the children would not have enough space to practice and the adults would be forced to wait even longer for an available court. If this is being considered, it seems very irresponsible to consider tearing down two perfectly functioning courts to replace them with something else. If there is a desire from the public to see pickle ball courts installed, then the city should considering using space that is available or already in need of renovation.

    Has or would the City consider adding an aquatics complex similar to those of Pompano and Coral Springs? An aquatics complex with olympic size lap pool for swim classes, open lap swimming, kids swim programs, and shallow water pools for water-aerobics would be great amenities for all residents of Coconut Creek to utilize.

    I would suggest a bicycle trail if possible.

    Add a water fountain and more shade to the large dog area of the dog park. Also, mosquito traps would be nice for all three areas.
