Elysian Park

Best Secret Public Tennis Course, Sepetember 2005
Want to play tennis on a Saturday afternoon? Good luck finding a court that’s not mobbed. There’s an abandoned court in Runyon Canyon, but it’s dirty and netless. The quiet courts by the merry-go-round in Griffith Park are nicer, but they were damaged in the recent wildfire and have yet to reopen. Then there are the courts in Elysian Park near Dodger Stadium. They may not be country club quality, but they sit on the edge of a park shaded by tall trees. Perfect for those who want to play free of reservations, rules, time constraints, or onlookers.
