Construction will begin next week on a new sport court at Wetherby Park.  

The City of Iowa City Parks and Recreation Department launched the Wetherby Park sport court planning process in August 2016, which included a public input meeting held September 28, 2016. Public comments, including those of area youth, were incorporated into the plan. The court will accommodate many activities and have lines painted for basketball and futsal. This project is supported through funds from a $75,000 Wellmark Foundation Community Health MATCH grant and Community Development Block Grant funds. Construction work begins the week of May 15, 2017, and is expected to continue through the end of July, depending on weather.
