Tennis Court Construction
Parking Lot Closed
Beginning Monday, a segment of the Sioux Park Stadium parking lot will be fenced off for equipment as construction is set to begin on the much-anticipated tennis courts project.
The west portion of the Sioux Park Stadium parking lot adjacent to Canyon Lake Drive will be fenced off by contractors to stage equipment to be used for the $3 million Sioux Park tennis courts renovation project. The project is scheduled for completion November 1, 2023.
During the construction phase, the Sioux Park tennis courts and the west entrance to Sioux Park Stadium off Canyon Lake Drive will be closed.
Tennis courts are also available for public use at Wilson Park, the Parkview Complex and Quarry Park. City Recreation officials indicate scheduled practices, games and lessons for high school tennis and City Recreation tennis programs will take priority at Parkview. The Parkview courts will be used by City Recreation for summer tennis programs and will have limited public use during the spring and fall to accommodate high school tennis seasons.
The public can access Sioux Park, Sioux Park Stadium, Noordermeer Field and the Jimmy Hilton pool at Sioux Park by using the east parking lot entrance off Canyon Lake Drive and the two entrances on Sheridan Lake Road.
The Sioux Park Tennis Court project was one of 11 projects approved a year ago by the Rapid City Common Council to receive Vision Fund money, based on recommendations from the Citizens Vision Fund Committee. The Council approved $3 million for the tennis court project, which will reconstruct the 12 tennis courts at Sioux Park, install new LED sports lighting, seating and shade structures, new fencing and windscreens and upgrade vendor, spectator and team amenities as well as drainage improvements.
“We are looking forward to getting construction started on this much-anticipated and much-needed project,” said City Parks and Recreation Landscape Designer Melissa Petersen. “After considerable review and deliberation, this was one of the priority community projects recommended by the citizens committee and approved for funding by the Council. When it’s completed, it will greatly enhance the recreational options for the public.”
Complete Concrete, Inc. of Rapid City is the contractor on the project.
