Minnetrista city staff, council members and community members came to Lisle Park on July 20 for an official ribbon cutting for the Lisle Park Tennis Courts. These tennis courts were built this spring and summer in Lisle Park at the Hunters Crest neighborhood.
First put out for bid in 2014, the project was postponed to 2015 in hopes of getting lower bids, which the city did. Additionally, the city was awarded a $100,000 grant from the Hennepin County Youth Sports Program. This grant covered about 40 percent of construction costs.
