Mount Pleasant Park is full of entertainment for the whole family. Work on your backhand on the tennis courts located beside the second parking lot. The basketball court is a couple steps away from the tennis court. Mount Pleasant Park has a wonderful gravel-walking path loop through the woods near the playground and rentable shelter.
From Interstate 581, take Rt. 24E (Elm Avenue). Turn right onto 13th Street at the traffic signal (13th Street will turn into Bennington Avenue). At the Roanoke City Fire Station, turn left onto Mt. Pleasant Blvd. (Rt. 886). Bear left at the Mt. Pleasant sign, then left again past Mt. Pleasant Baptist Church onto Pitzer Road. Park is on the right behind the school. Shelter is at the end of the park road.
