See the newly-constructed outdoor courts and Show Low’s old jail
SHOW LOW, Ariz. (October 3, 2018) – The City of Show Low will hold ribbon-cutting ceremonies on Friday, Oct. 5, for the newly-constructed outdoor pickleball courts at 9 a.m. (located at the city campus, 620 E. McNeil) and at the city’s historic jail site at 9:30 on the grounds of Show Low City Hall, 180 N. 9th Street. The public is invited to attend.
A group of avid pickleball players partnered with the city to construct four new outdoor courts through securing monetary donations and providing technical support. The courts will see play this weekend for an inaugural pickleball tournament.
The historic jail, moved late last year from an inconspicuous location off White Mountain Road, now sits at the southwest corner of the city hall property. The jail was built in 1935, under the direction of Navajo County Deputy Sheriff Ray Butler, of sandstone block quarried north of Show Low by stonecutters. It served as a jail for about 20 years. A plaque engraved with the jail’s history has been erected.
