Elementary school tennis court removal

Post Date:04/02/2020
After careful consideration, Olathe Parks & Rec and the Olathe School District have decided to remove the tennis courts from Havencroft, Rolling Ridge and Scarborough elementary schools. We recognize many of you have enjoyed playing on these courts for many years; however, the maintenance costs at the aging courts outweighs the benefits and costs of keeping the courts in operation. Although currently closed, tennis players will continue to be able to use courts at the Olathe high schools and at Mill Creek Park and Two Trails Park when it is safe to do so.

Removal began Tuesday, March 31, at Rolling Ridge Elementary. Dates for Havencroft and Scarborough are forthcoming. The Olathe School District is evaluating how the space at each school will be used in the future.

The longstanding partnership between Olathe Parks & Rec and the Olathe School District is integral to providing citizens with facilities that are well-maintained and safe for all to enjoy. We appreciate your patience and understanding as we make these changes.
