Tennis Court MAKEOVER
Cottonwood Residential property Lake St. James in Conyers, GA repurposed thier aging and underutilized tennis court and breathed new life into it. Now the area is a cheerful Dog Park complete with seating, new sod , and fresh landscaping. It s better suited to the needs and interests of the residents, it s more attractive, and its greener too.
The project was a vision of Lake St. James Apartments, who teamed up with Pet and Playground Products of Eclectic, AL. A growing number of apartments are re-purposing thier tennis courts, explains Pet and Playground Products Senior Project Consultant Steve Crum. It makes more sense than throwing money at tennis court repairs
because it creates something new that more residents will use, Plus it looks fantastic. Lake St. James had the added benefit that all of the colorful fixtures and landscaping are visible from the street. People drive by and think hey nice property - something good is happening there!
Lake St. James Apartments in Conyers, GA found a way to add life and visual appeal to an aging amenity.
(Lake St. James continued)
The Lake St. James tennis court makeover used a perimeter of existing court surface, which was repaired and repainted in an attractive earth tone color. New sod, dog park fixtures, and landscaping were placed in the center. This creates a paved walking path around the entire park while still leaving a large area for dog activity fixtures.
The colorful commercial-grade Dog Park fixtures from Pet and Playground Products are designed to take plenty of demanding use while maintaining their appearance.
From highly affordable to extra luxurious...Youll find a tennis court re-purpose option that fits your needs and budget. And though dog parks are a popular amenity addition, there are many different applications that take your old tennis court and add spark and vitality to the community.
