The City of Englewood's Department of Parks, Recreation and Library strives to maintain the best parks and open spaces in the metro area. In this pursuit, several Englewood Parks are undergoing improvements. Please refer back to this page for regular updates and progress reports on these and future parks projects.
Romans Park Tennis and Playground Improvement
The Department of Parks, Recreation and Library has been awarded a $500,000 grant from Arapahoe County Open Spaces for the Romans Park Tennis and Improvement project. Elements of the project include the replacement of the current tennis courts that due to deteriorating condition, have recently been closed. The new tennis courts will have three courts compared to the current four courts in order to comply with the United States Tennis Association's safety guidelines. The courts will also be painted to accommodate both children and adults. The project also includes two ADA play areas (2-5 years of age and 5-12 years of age) with ADA compliant walkways. Parks staff is in the process of refurbishing the mushrooms. The Department will be exploring options on submitting a grant for Phase II that will include the replacement of the restroom, basketball court and walkways in addition to a new shelter.
