TENNIS COURT STATUS


All courts are CLOSED for organized use. 
You must purchase a tennis membership to use the courts in any capacity. Membership will provide you a pin-code access to enter the courts. Please do not use courts during or immediately after rain, as you will damage the clay surface.

Courts are available on a first-come, first-serve basis with the exception of Town sanctioned events, which have priority and are scheduled in advance.

NEW MULTI SPORT COURT!

This is an outdoor, lighted court located next to the Comdna Pool and Brooks Gym on Balfield Road.  It is primarily set up for open basketball play, but can be configured for volleyball, tennis, badminton or deck hockey as needed.  Court lights are available at dusk 7 days per week.  The button is located on the lower left light pole and shuts down automatically at 10pm.

PLAYGROUNDS
Lincoln has 3 playgrounds for public use: BLUE (Age 2-5), RED (Age 5-7) and GREEN (Age 8-11). The BLUE playground is available for public use from dawn to dusk, 7 days/week. The RED and GREEN Playgrounds are available for use before and after school hours (8-3PM) M-F, and dawn to dusk on weekends. Playground use is at your own risk and we do not recommend using them during the winter months when the safety surfacing is frozen and cannot provide protection from falls.  We also ask that you take your trash with you when you leave.

OPEN SPACE AND RECREATION PLAN

The Conservation Commission and Parks & Recreation Committee - through its staff, a resident-based Advisory Group, and a consultant - are spearheading the effort to update the Open Space and Recreation Plan (OSRP) for approval by MA Division of Conservation Services. Learn about our work here!
