Lasker Park tennis courts closed for resurfacing as part of larger improvement project

City of Galveston tennis courts are getting a makeover as part of a citywide resurfacing initiative funded by Better Parks for Galveston and the Industrial Development Corporation. 

The tennis courts at Lasker Park near 43rd Street and Avenue Q will be closed for the next three weeks while crews resurface the courts. During that time, the tennis courts at Menard Park and Lindale Park will remain open so residents continue to have a place to play tennis. 

“The goal for this project is to improve our parks facilities, while minimizing the impact on residents who regularly use the courts,” City Manager Brian Maxwell said.

Once the work at Lasker Park is complete, resurfacing work will begin at the Menard Park tennis courts. The City of Galveston anticipates the completion of all tennis courts by next spring. As part of the work, the courts will also be updated to meet the US Tennis Association’s pickleball court standards, including realigning the courts and allowing for adjustable netting. At the end of the project, all City of Galveston courts will be playable for tennis and pickleball. 

Through a generous donation, Better Parks for Galveston is funding the work at Lasker Park and Menard Park. The Industrial Development Corporation, funded by sales tax, is funding the Lindale Park resurfacing.
