For Immediate Release: September 1, 2017
The City of Alexandria Department of Recreation, Parks and
Cultural Activities will be renovating the tennis and basketball courts at
Powhatan Park, 1010 Douglas St. The courts will be milled, repaved, and
recolored. The courts will be lined for tennis, pickleball, futsal and
basketball. The existing fencing and goals will be replaced and a movable
tennis net and futsal goals will be added.
Weather permitting, work is scheduled for September 14 through
October 30. Please note that the new asphalt must cure for two weeks after
installation before new lines and color can be applied.
The park will be open during construction, however temporary
parking restrictions may occur. Patrons should expect work throughout the day.
For your safety, please be alert to construction activities and use extra
caution when moving around the site.
Alternate courts for use during construction are in Eugene
Simpson Park, located at 426 East Monroe Ave.
