"It's excellent to have a public facility where we can have public leagues and classes," said Julie Jilly, past president of the Island Rec Association and vice president of the Professional Tennis Registry.
"With them being public courts, we can have exhibitions where the public can attend," Jilly
"Also, organizations such as the Special Olympics will have a place to practice and not have to worry about scheduling their practices around private courts' lessons and leagues."
Overall, many agreed the courts are a welcomed addition to an already beautiful park.
"It is a beautiful facility full of other amenities, such as soccer fields and a dog park, the tennis courts just add to that," Jilly
