But Chapjian said building only two tennis courts at the sports complex would cost $1.1 million, partly because the project would require a retaining wall. Alex Dobuzinskis, (818) 546-3304 GLENDALE – The tennis courts at Central Park have fought off City Hall’s match point, but only temporarily. The four courts were set to close this week to prepare for their demolition as part of a $10.5 million project to rebuild and expand the nearby Adult Recreation Center. But now they’ll stay open until at least mid-June, city officials said Monday. Members of the Glendale Central Tennis Club and other tennis players argued that the courts should be kept open as long as possible, since actual demolition wasn’t scheduled to begin immediately. The city needs $2.8 million in county money to go ahead with the ARC project. After hearing from the players, the city talked to the county, which allowed the park’s four courts at Colorado and Louise streets to stay open until mid-June, officials said. last_img
