Green Hills Park – tennis courts update

from the Friends of Green Hills Park

Friends, your voices have been heard. The Parks Department tells us that Green Hills Park is at the top of the list for court resurfacing! But there is a big catch – they have to receive the funding.  Last year, Parks received $10M for deferred maintenance in the budget. This year, it is not clear whether they will get that funding. Or if they do, it may not come until after October (which would likely push the resurfacing to spring, due to the cool weather).

Part of the problem is that the courts have deteriorated so badly that instead of repainting (at a cost of $4-5K/court), they need resurfacing ($40K/court).  So the cost of resurfacing Green Hills Park courts is likely $120,000.  We’ll keep you posted as Metro goes through its budget process in the next two months.

Do you know the history of the park?  It was part of John Trotwood Moore’s estate, known as Arden Place.  The estate was torn down in the late 1960’s to build the school and park.  We’ve found a few articles on this history, which are shared here. Have more info on the history of the park? Email us at
