Post image for Nealon Park sports blue and green tennis courts

All five tennis courts at Nealon Park have been resurfaced and painted blue and green, thanks to feedback from the tennis community. The new court colors will enhance visibility of the ball for players. The repair work is a temporary fix until full reconstruction of the tennis courts begins this spring.

This resurfacing project is part of a face-lift that the all the courts in Menlo Park city courts will receive over the next five years.

The City offers the option to purchase a tennis court key for annual or single-day use. Reservations can also be made for a specific time of day.

More information on the City’s tennis court facilities is available online.
