History

In 2017, Argay Park’s tennis court was fully renovated with funding from the 2014 Parks Replacement Bond. Improvements included: ADA accessibility on the pathway from NE 141st Avenue to the tennis courts; rebuilt playing surface to eliminate cracking and differential settlement; replacement of fencing, nets, drinking fountain, wood planking on benches, and the stanchions; installment of a stormwater facility to address runoff; and upgraded lighting.

Based on community input from Argay neighbors, PP&R kept four of the holly trees - two green and two variegated - to preserve the history of the site and neighborhood.

  • Three shade trees (Betula pendula - European white birch) identified as dying by the City's Arborist with Urban Forestry were removed.
  • All but four of the holly trees were removed.
  • 14 new trees were planted as replacements: six Green Vase Zelkova, six Douglas Fir, and two Shumard Red Oak
  • The trees were removed after August 1 to avoid bird nesting season.

The Tennis Court Restoration was completed in October 2017.
