Park Board Approves Berens Park North Tennis Courts Resurfacing

  • Berens Park tennis courts Elmhurst, IL

The Berens Park North Tennis Courts will be getting a facelift this spring. At the Monday, February 27 Park Board Meeting, the Board approved a resurfacing project for the tennis courts, at a cost of $121,946.17.

The scope of the project includes adding a layer of stone on top of the existing surface and overlaying with new asphalt and color coating. The tennis net posts and nets will also be replaced at a cost of $3,240. Work on the project is expected to begin in late May. The Berens Park South Tennis Courts will remain open and playable during construction.

The courts are in need of renovation due to cracking and surface issues and have not had a major overhaul since they were constructed in 2004. These courts in particular receive heavy usage from York High School varsity and summer programs, District tennis lessons and public recreational play. The project will ensure that the community will continue to enjoy use of these courts for years to come.
