The public is invited to a social hour which will offer an opportunity to learn more about a collaborative community project and provide financial support.
Ottumwa Schools, the City of Ottumwa, and Friends of Ottumwa’s Parks are collaborating to construct eight new tennis courts. High school students were unable to practice or compete on these courts last spring due to their condition. The school district says the courts will be first-class, long-lasting, and provide a quality playing surface for our prep boys and girls tennis teams, youth and adult league players, and tennis enthusiasts. Courts will continue to be open to the public when not used for prep practice and tennis meets.
The Friends of Ottumwa’s Parks group is taking the lead to secure the additional funds to complete project amenities such as restrooms, concessions, bleachers, gazebo, parking, etc. By supporting this project, you are investing in the health, growth, and future success of
