The tennis courts remain closed at this time due to the hazardous conditions, but the Park District is currently in the planning/permitting stage for the full replacement of the tennis and basketball courts. We anticipate permit drawings being completed and submitted to regulatory agencies at the end of June 2021. The permitting process can take several months, so construction will begin in Spring 2022.

July 16, 2021 - SmithGroup, our project engineer for the tennis and basketball courts replacement, is developing the schematic drainage plan for the project site. During this process, it was determined that some key information on the City atlases and maps are missing data. The project team is coordinating with the City on this missing data. The project is expected to be out to bid in the fall/winter of 2021 and construction will begin in 2022.
