But the smaller-sized courts are just a few of a number of tennis court construction projects that will hit Boise parks this summer.

Ann Morrison Park will be renovating two adult courts and building four smaller youth tennis courts. The project also includes new fencing, parking, bike racks and a shelter.

The newly-opened Terry Day Park on the Boise Bench will see the creation of two new tennis courts, a back board and sidewalk improvements.

Helen Lowder Park in Southeast Boise will also see the creation of two new tennis courts and landscaping. That park is slated to to get a new volleyball court, two shelters and a horseshoe pit, as well.

Bids have already been accepted and construction should be underway soon.
