(Portland, OR) -
Thanks to funding from the Parks Replacement Bond, construction will begin in June to restore all four existing tennis courts at Argay Park, NE 141st Avenue and Failing Street. Work will include resurfacing the courts, repairing the pathway from NE 141st to the courts to correct ADA deficiencies, installing new benches and a water fountain, improving tennis court lighting, and replacing fencing, nets, and the stanchions

Four holly trees will be kept to preserve the history of the site and neighborhood, and fourteen new shade trees will be planted. Some of the invasive holly trees near the courts will be removed to provide better sight lines from the street. Tree removal will occur after August 1 to avoid bird nesting season. Other areas of the park will not be impacted by construction.
Argay Park is located at NE 141st Avenue and Failing Street in the Argay neighborhood and has the only PP&R tennis courts located east of I-205. More information at portlandoregon.gov/parks/69889
