Pershing Park tennis courts to be dedicated

FULTON — The four renovated tennis courts at Pershing Park are repaired, renovated and repainted, and tonight, they’ll be rededicated.

The Minneapolis Park and Recreation Board will host a 6 p.m. event featuring games for children and adults, demonstrations, entertainment and refreshments. A ribbon-cutting ceremony will be held at 6:30 p.m.

The Pershing Park courts were one set in a trio of tennis court renovation projects sponsored by Kenwood resident Ellen Doll’s Support The Courts. An anonymous donor paid for half of the $500,000 price tag, which also applied to Webber Park, near Shingle Creek, and Powderhorn Park.

Pershing Park is located at 3523 W. 48th St. The event is free and open to the public.
