Kissena Park tennis courts need better maintenance
From CBS 2:
They claim the city has left their local tennis courts in disarray.
The Har-Tru clay courts require a lot of water to stay solid and safe. When they dry out, holes develop in the clay and nails start to surface.
Residents said the sprinkler’s timer system lasted only one season. Now someone from the parks department manually turns the sprinklers on, but the water doesn’t even reach the entire court.
CBS2 asked a parks employee to explain, but he wouldn’t say much.
“The people who put it in, they were supposed to – well, I don’t want to say,” he said.
