"Bisbee Outdoor Recreation Center"
“We don’t stop playing because we grow old,
we grow old because we stop playing.”
— George Bernard Shaw
In the past few years, Bisbee Vogue, Inc. has dedicated resources to creating a unique recreation hub on Higgins Hill Park in Bisbee. This is the site of the Bisbee outdoor pool built in 1969 and now includes a basketball court and two pickleball courts. BVI lobbied for and invested financially to build the Bisbee Outdoor Recreation Court (BORC) in partnership with the City of Bisbee and KE&G Construction, Inc.. This fitness court features seven fitness workout stations and was officially opened in May 2021.
Special appreciation goes to The Milt Coulter Blazing Saddles Trust and Pioneer Title Agency whose generous donations, along with ten years of dedicated partial proceeds from the Bisbee 1000, The Great Stairclimb event, provided the funding via BVI to make this collaborative project a reality.
The addition of this court at the Higgins Hill Park location has created a tremendous opportunity for Bisbee residents and visitors to have free, safe, access to outdoor recreation. The center brings economic benefits as as many Bisbee visitors seek a variety of outdoor activities taking advantage of our excellent climate.
