Giving Our Basketball Courts a Makeover

October 11, 2018

Today, Nick was honored to join representatives from Nike and the Portland Trail Blazers at Parklane Park’s newly restored basketball court in East Portland.

It was an afternoon of celebrating basketball and our parks. Parklane is the first of nearly 100 courts to be resurfaced across Portland thanks to our two outstanding community partners.

These courts help kids stay physically active – a core part of what Portland Parks & Recreation, Nike, and the Blazers all know is good for kids’ health and their social well-being.

Special thanks to Nike and the Trail Blazers, local non-profit Verde Builds for serving as the general contractor for the project, and all the hard-working PP&R staff for supporting basketball and our parks!
