OAKWOOD, Ohio (WDTN) – An Oakwood park will begin renovations next week and the planned improvements will impact residents.
The City of Oakwood said Tuesday the Shafor Park Tennis Court Reconstruction Project will involve removal of the existing tennis courts and construction of a completely new facility, including a 25 space parking lot to serve the OCC, Gardner Pool, Shafor Park and the tennis facility.
The construction work is scheduled to be completed by late July or early August.
The city says Shafor Park will remain open throughout the project.
The Oakwood Community Center will also be open during the work and will maintain normal hours, but the only entrance will be through the front door off of Patterson Road.
Gardner Pool will be open from Memorial Day weekend through Labor Day, according to the standard schedule, but the pool entrance will be modified at certain times with access provided directly from Shafor Park.
“When completed, this project will provide Oakwood with a beautiful new tennis facility that will be open to the public and will be the home of Oakwood High School Tennis”, said Leisure Services Director Carol Collins.
