During construction, Kealakehe High School has agreed to allow public use of their tennis courts. For information regarding dates and times available, please see contact information below.

The project includes installation of a new court surfacing system, new LED lighting system for nighttime play, replacement of the fencing fabric and related enhancements.

The contractor will create a secure work area adjacent to the tennis courts that will be fenced off for the public’s safety; this is intended to contain the majority of its operations. There will be some utility and other work performed at certain times outside the secured area that may temporarily restrict vehicular access to the parking area close to the horseshoe pits. The county requests the public’s assistance in honoring the contractor’s worksite and ongoing construction operations.

The Department of Parks and Recreation thanks park users for their understanding and patience while the improvements of the tennis facilities progress.
