The existing courts at the park were originally constructed in 1976 (west side) and 1981 (east side) and were rebuilt by mill & overlay in 1990.  Following the rebuilding, each set of courts has received, to date, six rounds of crack repair & resurfacing with diminishing returns following each round of repair.  The fencing at the courts is also in poor condition - and lacks accessibility features at the doorways.  Parks has received frequent requests over the years to improve the condition of the courts from user groups and individuals and included funding requests as part of its capital budget to fully rebuild the courts.
