The new Denver Tennis Park facility is intended to serve the needs of underprivileged youth programs, Denver Public Schools and the University of Denver tennis students by providing an indoor and outdoor tennis facility with seven indoor courts and six outdoor courts. Located within the Denver South High School campus, Denver Tennis Park is operated by a non-profit organization with a focus on engaging youth in tennis. The schematic design for the facility refined and further developed the existing master plan study, with program updates and site-specific solutions to challenges presented with existing drainage issues, access and circulation, and limited available space.
The building features fitness areas, multi-use space, viewing areas, administrative offices, and locker rooms. An entry plaza was designed to provide space for gatherings, xeriscape plantings, and a variety of seating and bicycle parking. The outdoor courts incorporate sports lighting, spectator viewing areas, shade canopies, and a half-court practice high wall.
Services performed include the City of Denver entitlement process, and schematic design through construction administration.
