While the St. Paul website still lists Leonardo's Basement as the non-profit partner utilizing Griggs Recreation Center, they have moved to Minneapolis. St. Paul Urban Tennis (SPUT) filled the space for a short time, but have moved to Eastview Recreation Center and no longer occupy Griggs Recreation Center either.
