Gill Creek Park once again has basketball courts available for public usage. The new basketball court grand opening is set for 2:30 p.m. Monday, Sept. 14.
Ron Anderluh, the revitalization coordinator for Niagara Street, expressed his pleasure with the opening of this new basketball court: “Gill Creek Park previously had basketball courts, and we’re glad that we were able to help bring them back. Now, our court is on par with a professional basketball court.”
Anderluh works with the Niagara Street Neighborhood Revitalization Organization to help keep up with the community surrounding Niagara Street. The organization works with the city to keep the neighborhood clean, maintenance of public spaces and regular road maintenance.
“The city is glad to be able to provide this amenity to Gill Creek,” Mayor Robert Restaino said. “Working with our partners on Niagara Street we continue to look for ways to further enhance the park for local residents.”
Restaino and other city officials will be in attendance of the grand-opening of the new court.
