$850,000 in Improvements to Courts in Forest Glade
Windsor City Council is spending $850,000 on improvements to the City’s tennis facility in Forest Glade Park, which will see the aging courts and fencing transformed into a modern tennis and pickleball facility.
Warmer weather is required for the installation of the new upgraded surfacing, and removal of all existing courts. Now that spring has arrived, work will begin on April 11, 2022, and take approximately two weeks to complete. Following this, the true transformation will begin.
Six new tennis courts and ten new pickleball courts, all with specialized surfacing and colour coating, will be installed over a two-month construction period. There will also be new court access points created, and new fencing erected, as well as installation of wind and noise blocking mesh. A new meeting and rest area will be created off court, and better drainage will be installed around the entire area.
In the interim, tennis and pickleball fans do have other court options in the City; just visit the tennis page of CityWindsor.ca for details.
