This is really preposterous: Pleasanton Mayor claims that the city does not have funds to build a set of pickelball courts, and the only solution is to take a few publicly available and heavily used tennis courts out of circulation. But here we are, talking about $9M skate park, $450K restroom - what a terrible waste!

Muirwood park already has some restrooms, just build a set of pickleball courts there, leave tennis courts alone.
