As part of the new Highline High School replacement project, six new tennis courts are under construction in part of the field at the Sunnydale site.
Architects and district staff had to get creative about where to build tennis courts when designing the new high school within the tight constraints of the existing site.
Here's the bonus to constructing tennis courts at the nearby Sunnydale location: We expect the new tennis courts to be completed this summer, and available for the 2020-21 tennis season. A small bathroom building is included in the project.
The existing big play toy at Sunnydale stays in place, as well as the ball field on the south side of the Sunnydale field. The tennis courts are on the north side of the Sunnydale field. The new courts are located adjacent to South 156th Street and across the street from the Moshier Park fields.
A new pedestrian crossing light was installed by the City of Burien at the South 156th Street exit from HHS and Moshier Field. After the new Highline High School opens in fall 2021, student athletes accessing the new tennis courts will use the crosswalk and signal light.
