Attention Tennis Players in Ward 14

I have two good news stories for avid tennis players in Ward 14. The Park and Recreation 2008 capital projects include funds for revitalization of the Tennis Courts, located at Marilyn Bell Park. The work, which I have requested to begin in September, to allow access over the summer, will include new court surface as well as new fencing and net posts.

In addition I am pleased to say that, at my request, Parks and the TDSB have negotiated a shared use agreement for the tennis courts at Parkdale Collegiate Institute. The courts will be open to the public for use after regular school hours starting next week. The courts will be opened by TDSB staff in the morning and closed by Parks staff at 9:30pm daily.
