[ARCHIVED] Community Center Tennis Courts Closure for Rehabilitation

Tennis Court Closures August 4-October 25, 2022

Three of the four tennis courts at the Glenwood Springs Community Center will be closed for full-scale rehabilitation beginning August 4, 2022. Courts 1, 2, and 3 will be closed for approximately three months while crews convert asphalt to post-tension concrete.

 

To facilitate construction, there will be a pedestrian detour around the front of the Community Center to the rear of the Community Center. Pedestrians and bicyclists should follow posted signage. Additionally, the northeast Community Center parking lot will be used as a temporary construction staging area.

 

Temporary tennis lines will be added to the courts at the end of this year's work and crews will return in 2023 to paint. Next year court 4 will be resurfaced and painted with both Tennis and Pickleball lines. All work is weather dependent and subject to change.

 

For racquet sport players, court 4 at the Community Center, the courts at Sayre Park and the Veltus park court will remain open for public drop-in. Reservations for USTA match play will be required at least two weeks in advance. Intermittent closures of court 4 may be required for safety.

A special thank you to the Conservation Trust Fund for funding these improvements through a Great Outdoors Colorado allocation for outdoor recreation use.
