This project provides for the renovation of the six tennis courts located at Annie Jones Park, replacement of the five courts at R. S. Dunham Park, and the installation of new pickleball and basketball courts at Walnut Street Park.
The tennis courts at Dunham & Jones are heavily used throughout the year for recreational play and tournament events. The asphalt courts have continued cracking over the past few years causing maintenance repairs to be frequent. The life of both tennis courts have surpassed expectations and has become necessary for replacement.
The Walnut Street Park project will include the addition of four pickle ball courts, a basketball court, and areas for picnic tables with new sidewalks connecting all new amenities to existing restrooms and parking.
The R.S. Dunham Park project will replace the existing five courts with six new tennis courts, a practice wall, site utilities, connecting sidewalks, landscaping and a picnic shelter.
The Annie Jones Park project will renovate the six, existing courts, site utilities, sidewalks, and landscaping. Work shall also include reconfiguration of adjacent parking spaces to provide room for the court renovation expansion.
The existing amenities at all three parks will remain open during construction.
Project Cost and Schedule
Funding for design was appropriated in FY 2018 while funding for construction will be requested in a future year. The Annie Jones and RS Dunham projects will be phased separately to maximize the number of courts available to citizens and programmed events during construction.
