Baker Tennis Court Renovation

Baker Tennis Courts

Project Description

Baker Tennis Courts are on the Baker School property that includes significant grade changes. The highest point is in the front playground and field area, with a steep drop to the tennis court. Mature oaks and a garden are located at the front of the property. The recreational facilities include 5 tennis courts, a small play area, one and one-half basketball courts, and a softball infield. The wooded hillside behind the fields and the tennis courts are adjacent to the D. Blakely Hoar Conservation Area.
