FYI: Steve Cox Memorial Park tennis courts closing for 2+ months

(File photo of Steve Cox tennis courts, after 2012 renovations)

Given the popularity of racquet sports, we’re mentioning this here as well as on partner site White Center Now: King County Parks says the tennis courts at Steve Cox Memorial Park are closing starting this Wednesday (June 12) through August 20. The announcement says the courts will get some work done including “resurfacing the tennis courts, constructing a new ADA ramp, installation of root barriers, sidewalk repair, and fire lane striping.” It’s been 12 years since the courts got a major overhaul.

    Ummm, the lack of forsight in our neck of the woods is crazy! So, the most popular time for tennis, they close for 2 months. I’m not a tennis player but, I am so annoyed. I get that you need good weather but we can cover an entire infield in baseball in 2 minutes. C’mon folks..

     Those courts already 100 times better then Alki.  I wish someone would resurface them.   Hiawatha courts are also in need of TLC.

    I’m assuming they need decent weather but why do this work during the only two months of the year they can even be used?!!
