The city of Franklin has completed a project to rehabilitate the courts, which were over 30 years old, according to Parks Director Lisa Clayton. While construction started earlier this year, the entire process has been in the works since last October, she said.
"We have thousands of residents, and our schools and that type of thing use these courts, so we figured out the funding and began the project almost immediately," Clayton said.
Franklin Mayor Ken Moore, City Administrator Eric Stuckey and other local officials were in attendance to cut the ribbon on the new facility.
"Health is really important to our community," Moore said. "We look at four different areas, and one of those areas is activity, and this would qualify as a great activity to promote health in our community.
