    We are hosting two identical outreach sessions to gather community input on permanently converting the Tennis Court at Allendale Park into a Pickleball Court. The purpose of these meetings is to present information to the community and receive input on proposed changes to the existing tennis court. A brief presentation on potential changes will be followed by question and answer sessions with representatives from HSRD as well as the Parks and Natural Resources Division of the Public Works Department. Community members who are not available to attend the meetings but would like to provide input may contact Leonardo Chavez, Recreation Coordinator, Victory Park. Phone: (626)744-8336 or email: lchavez@cityofpasadena.net. Comments, suggestions and questions may also be submitted under the “customer feedback” page on our website.
