Richwood Park might get pickleball courts


By Michael Williamson, Richwood Gazette

Richwood may soon be updating the tennis courts at the park.

Mayor Scott Jerew said the Richwood Park Trailblazers Group, which hosts various fundraisers each year to improve the park’s amenities, would head the project.
