Project to Improve Gerrard Park Tennis Courts is Underway

The project to improve the tennis courts at Gerrard Park began on Monday. 

Construction crews began tearing down the old courts.  New dual-purpose courts for tennis and pickleball will be installed a little northwest of that area.  A city news release notes that pickleball is considered the fastest-growing sport in America with a 40% increase in players since 2019, according to the New York Times. 

The city says the new courts should be ready for use by the fall.  The project will be completed using funds from the existing sales tax.
