Lakewood Park Tennis Center is a public tennis facility that is 'pay as you play', with no residency requirements. That means we're here to serve the tennis community as a whole. No prohibitively expensive membership or hidden "catch" involved. In the spirit of our tennis sibling, Gates Tennis Center, we wish to cultivate the best local tennis scene possible. And that means including everyone. The only real catch is that if you're out here, we want you having a great time. And we're pretty positive you will.
