Free tennis courts are great. On a drive through any Dallas neighborhood, you're likely to happen upon several pairs of them, as they dot our city like rectangular freckles. That said, there's no worse feeling than getting all dressed up for tennis and pulling up to a full tennis court. Hitting a ball against the fence just doesn't cut it when you're waiting your turn to play. Not so at Cole Park in Uptown. Eight good courts make for little to no wait, and at less than a mile from the Katy Trail, these courts also make for a tidy stop-off from a jog or bike ride. Plus, the courts are lit for the types who like to take their tennis parties into the wee hours.
