New Pickleball, Tennis, And Volleyball Courts To Enhance Outdoor Recreation In Baltimore County's Fifth District
PERRY HALL - Baltimore County's Fifth District is getting new pickleball, tennis, and volleyball courts at two locations, Councilman David Marks announced on Thursday.
At Oliver Beach Elementary School, two standalone pickleball courts and a separate tennis court are nearing completion. Weather-dependent, the final touches of color and acrylic will be added next week. This location will become the second outdoor site offering standalone pickleball courts with nets.
Soukup Arena in Perry Hall also received three new pickleball and two volleyball courts.
Marks noted that the local community has eagerly awaited the construction of new courts and thanked County Executive Johnny Olszewski for advancing the projects.
"I would like to thank County Executive Olszewski and the Department of Recreation and Parks for advancing these courts, which have been requested by so many residents," Marks said.
Tim Bonner, president of the Perry Hall Recreation Council, thanked the council for bringing these long-desired amenities to the fifth district.
"The Perry Hall Recreation Council is pleased to partner with Baltimore County," Bonner said.
The new recreation spaces highlight Marks's commitment to bringing constituents more open spaces and parks. Since 2010, nearly a dozen new parks have been added in the Fifth District.
