FARWELL PARK TENNIS COURT IMPROVEMENTS
Almost entirely because of the advocacy of the Farwell Recreation Advisory Council, tennis court improvements were identified as a high priority project at Farwell Park. The replacement of eight (8) courts is underway with $500,000 from the City of Detroit's General Fund. Construction is anticipated to be complete by Summer 2023.
Future phases of improvements may be planned but are subject to funding.
