    The lighted fountain at Windmont Park looks awesome! What a great addition to an already beautiful park. Many thanks for your efforts.

    I plan on being “home” over Labor Day weekend, and would love to be able to play pickleball. Are there groups of individuals that play at somewhat designated times of day/week? And if so, do they allow walk ons?

    • Kewanee Park District says:

      There is a large group that plays on Saturday or Sunday mornings. We believe Rick Lashbrook organizes the groups but unfortunately we don’t have contact information for him. Their group is not run through the Park District as our courts are first come, first serve.
