Seattle Parks and Recreation has shut off the lights at Green Lake’s outdoor tennis courts until the return to Daylight Savings Time on March 11, 2012.
The lights, along with those at several other outdoor tennis courts in Seattle, were shut off in an effort to create energy savings during the winter months when few people play outside. Parks estimates the savings from turning off tennis court lights across the city to be about $15,000.
Lights will stay on at several other courts through the winter, including eight of the fourteen courts the Lower Woodland Park tennis courts.
