McFetridge Sports Center
Given the tendency of unsupervised children to use tennis nets for soccer practice, the hunt for a nice court in the city can drive a person mad. Few spots are as reliable as McFetridge, which boasts four courts with zero cracks in their surface. It may not be the biggest facility, but the park stays lit well into the evening, and on a hot summer day there’s no better place to cool down than the nearby ice rink in the adjacent sports center.
