Our current large project is raising money for new tennis courts for Ottumwa.  The current courts are in total disrepair, to the point players can actually get hurt.  Within a few years, the courts will be too dangerous for the high school program to continue.  New courts would be vital to attracting large invitationals & providing more economic dollars to our community.  The total estimated cost of the project is $2,144,000.  Friends of Ottumwa's Parks has already secured $1.5 million from the Ottumwa Community Schools and up to $750 thousand from the City of Ottumwa.  If you are interested in donating please visit our donation tab.
