Pickleball Courts at Richmond Park

Here’s something you can do at Richmond Park. We have two Pickleball Courts at Richmond Park for residents of Lyndon and the surrounding communities to use. We have Pickleball equipment available to be checked out at Village Hall, 605 W. Commercial (the Village Hall is the building behind the Lyndon Veteran’s Memorial). Our office hours are Monday through Friday 8:00am to 4:00pm.  You just have to stop in and fill out a form and then you may check out the equipment to use at the Pickleball courts. We asked that you return them by 9:00am the following morning so that others may check them out.  Hope everyone has a very enjoyable and safe summer!!
