College Station Envisions Covered Tennis Courts Through Public-Private Partnership

The College Station City Council has shown support for a project by the College Station Parks Foundation to construct three covered tennis courts on city-owned land at Bee Creek Park. This initiative marks the first from the newly established nonprofit, which aims to create partnerships between the city and its parks to enhance the park system. The proposed covered courts would be situated behind existing tennis courts at Bee Creek Park, and their construction is expected to cost over $1 million, with a goal to have them operational or nearing completion by the end of 2024. A local resident and tennis player pledged a $500,000 donation to kickstart fundraising efforts. The new facility would make Bee Creek Park the largest tennis venue in College Station, allowing for tournaments and potentially boosting the city’s economy. While the courts wouldn’t be air-conditioned, they would offer a valuable resource for tennis enthusiasts in the community. The City Council unanimously supported the project, acknowledging its potential benefits for the city.
