The Lake Oswego Tennis Center is undergoing renovation and an addition to improve the functionality of the facility. Major improvements include new restroom facilities, office space for staff, a new lobby space and front desk, a multi-use room, a tennis court viewing room, and improved ADA accessibility.

 Currently the contractor is excavating the site and implementing the demolition of the front section of the building that will allow the construction of the new addition. The excavation was delayed by a few weeks due to contractor issues with a sub-contractor that could not mobilize to the site as expected. A new sub-contractor was hired to provide the excavation and demolition and this work is proceeding. Electrical and plumbing demolition is also occurring within the existing building in preparation for the new addition.

 The project is proceeding on schedule and is expected to be completed  Spring 2022. The project design has not changed since the approval and permitting of the project by City Council, Lake Oswego Planning Department, Lake Oswego Engineering Department, and Lake Oswego Building Department. The approved plans are  available for review by the public and are posted on the City of Lake Oswego planning website
