Pickleball now available at Nealon Park and Kelly Park
Pickleball is a popular and fast-growing sport that combines elements of tennis, badminton and Ping-Pong into a lively experience for all ages and abilities. Played on a modified tennis court, pickleball is a fun outdoor activity the whole family can enjoy. By popular demand, Menlo Park now offers pickleball at Nealon Park and Kelly Park.
- The City of Menlo Park has begun a three-month pilot program at Nealon Park (800 Middlefield Avenue) on court #5. The court is set aside for drop-in pickleball play from 8:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. and then shared with tennis from 3:00 to 10:00 p.m. No key is needed to access the pickleball court.
- Kelly Park (100 Terminal Ave.) has had a pilot program for about a year, open for drop-in visits.
