June 10, Oakhaven Tennis Court Update:

The tennis courts at Oakhaven Park are now open. We ask that players be vigilant in preventing the spread of the COVID-19 virus. Please follow all CDC guidelines and stay home if you are experiencing any symptoms. Before, during and after play, players must maintain a minimum distance of 6 feet from other people. Players should label their name on a personal ball(s) that only they touch during play. Players are encouraged to bring and use hand sanitizer. 


Responsibilities of the Parks & Recreation Department include coordination and planning of recreational activities and programs, and coordination of the Rock Hill summer Day Camp for children ages 6-12. The department is supervised by the Parks & Recreation Superintendent. Park maintenance is provided by the Public Works Department. The Parks & Recreation Commission also assist with these activities.
