Judson Park Tennis Court Now Open After Being Closed for Repairs
The tennis court at Judson Park reopened today after being closed for repairs.
The northeast corner of the court was impacted by subsidence and the damaged area has been demolished, stabilized and resurfaced.
The project also involved resetting of the tennis net supports and other court amenities and repainting of the court and lines.
The repairs are not expected to last indefinitely, but should be good for three to five years, Parks and Recreation Director Tim O’Connor said.
The cost of the repairs is $9,500 and was budgeted in the 2011 parks budget.
A permanent fix would involve the complete replacement of the court, which was estimated to cost $150,000. Staff determined that the subsidence needed to be addresses because it will continue to worsen, O’Connor said.
