Loveland, Ohio – City Manager Dave Kennedy told Loveland Magazine that the demolition of the public tennis courts at the city-owned Steven Boike Park at #1 Tiger Trail will not impact the existing parking lot used by high school students.
“The intent is that the area where the Boike Courts are will be used for a half-soccer field. They can then be used for soccer practices for the younger age groups,” explained Kennedy.
There were 5 five unlighted tennis courts at the park.
Kennedy added, “We also have courts at Lever Park which just got approval from Council for a repair, resurfacing, and re-striping like McCoy Park did in 2019.’ The work on the Lever Park Courts is scheduled to begin this spring.
There are two public tennis courts at Leever Park on Heidelberg Drive and two at McCoy Park on Oak Street.
