Project Background

The reconstruction of the courts located in the southwest corner of Penn Park has been included in the Parks Division's Capital Improvement Projects budget for 2023. The existing courts (two basketball, one tennis) are in poor condition and require full reconstruction. The two existing basketball courts are planned to be replaced, while the tennis court is planned to be removed and turned into a soccer mini-pitch/futsal court. A mini-pitch is soccer, typically with 5 players per team, played on a small hard court. Futsal is a soccer-based game played on the same court with a smaller, low bounce ball.

Project Planning will began in winter of 2022-2023. Construction is anticipated to begin in fall 2023 with anticipated completion in June 2024.
