Ribbon Cutting for Kellogg Tennis Court Replacement Project
Source: County of Santa Barbara
The public is invited to attend a ribbon cutting ceremony to commemorate the reopening of the renovated public tennis courts at 642 N. Kellogg Avenue in Goleta. The ceremony will begin at 2 p.m. on Friday, October 1.
Improvements include installation of three tennis and four pickleball courts in place of the previous four tennis courts; screened fencing; construction of a steel-cable post-tension concrete foundation to assuage cracking; replacement of degraded asphalt access walkways with concrete; and installation of bike racks and a bike repair station. Colored acrylic court surfacing was applied in accordance with American Tennis Association (ATA) standards.
“The County of Santa Barbara is working hard to improve neighborhood parks for our residents,” stated Second District County Supervisor Gregg Hart. “These new state of the art tennis and pickleball courts at Kellogg will be enjoyed by thousands of local residents. I want to thank the hard work and dedication of our Community Services Department staff to get this project funded and built. I’m very excited that local families will now be able to enjoy these new recreational opportunities with more to come!”
The tennis court complex on Kellogg Avenue is a popular local facility constructed in the 1960s. Repairs to the concrete courts in recent years had not corrected the recurring surface cracking. The Kellogg Tennis Court Replacement project will provide improved public safety and recreational opportunities for community members.
The $950,000 project was financed by the California Proposition 68 Per Capital Grant Program, Community Service Area 3 and County Parks Division general funds. Local civil engineer Scott Smith of Coast Engineering and Survey, Inc., designed the project that was constructed by Byrom-Davey, Inc.
