Perry Park Enhancements
Early in the 1900s Tennis was banned on the Hotel Front Lawn because men were looking at the women’s ankles on the courts. The courts were moved to Perry Park, where tennis has become a fixture – holding tournaments and welcoming families for nearly a century.
The current courts are approximately 35 years old and long overdue for repair. Special thanks to more than 20 Lakesiders whose generosity has made these enhancements possible.
Two pickleball courts, two full-scale tennis courts, and a new black fence will be installed in the space. The new fence will be more transparent and aesthetically pleasing. The new courts will allow children, youth, and individuals to gather for a game and play in a fun park setting.
The Perry Park project will begin with the removal of the old 35-year-old asphalt and the laying of new pads in September and October. The asphalt will need to cure for about a month and painting will get underway, weather-dependent, with most of the work being done by the spring. This will be another enhanced gathering space across our special grounds.
