City to Close Tennis Courts, Public Restrooms in Parks
The City of Pensacola Parks and Recreation Department will close Roger Scott Tennis Center, all city tennis courts and public restrooms in city parks by the close of business today, Monday, April 6.
The closures are in the interest of public health, as part of the city's ongoing efforts to help prevent the spread of COVID-19 in the Pensacola community.
The decision to close all tennis courts follows a recommendation released by the United States Tennis Association
regarding the safety of playing tennis during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Parks managed by the City of Pensacola remain open to the public, but playgrounds and other shared equipment are closed.
Basketball goals have also been removed from city parks.
