Central Park Tennis Courts #3 & #4 ready for play!
The renovation project of Central Park Tennis Courts #3 & #4 was completed in July of 2015.  The courts themselves were completely re-surfaced, and new fence was installed around them.  The project was partially funded by a $50,000 grant the City received through the Florida Recreation Development Assistance Program (FRDAP).
