Temporary Tennis Court Closure

The Parks and Recreation Department will complete the tennis court improvement project with fencing replacement at Olentangy Parklands between April 24 and May 7, 2017. Upper and lower courts will close for a period of one week during this time to remove and replace fencing and refurbish poles. Work is dependent on consistent minimum temperatures and rain. We invite you to enjoy the other tennis facilities at the following parks: Indianola, Linworth and Wilson Hill. 

established 1974
The Olentangy River Parklands boasts more than two miles of multi-use trail that wind serenely along the Olentangy River, shaded by large sycamore trees. This is a popular trail often used by those who love to bike, jog, in-line skate or just leisurely walk while enjoying the scenery. This 100-acre parkland is a true resource for the people and wildlife of Worthington. Besides the trail it also contains tennis courts, soccer fields, Winding Adventures Skate Park (added in 2001), two neighborhood playgrounds with swings and tot lots and river access for kayaks and canoes.  This is a wonderful park for observing spring wildflowers and fall colors on the magnificent old trees that line the river. At one time, this was a major route of transportation for Native Americans. 

For information about renting the fields or tennis courts at this park please see the Field Rentals page.
