Recreation Trends

The tennis courts at Pleasant View Park were resurfaced in May of 2019 and now include dual lines for both tennis and pickleball. Converter straps were added to one of the courts to help lower the net to the desired pickleball height. Many have asked what the sport of pickleball is all about, so we provided some information and resources here on this page, including the appropriate net heights. If you'd like to contribute your ideas or offer your support for designated courts in the future, please email parkinfo@sstwp.org or call 717-766-0178.
