Thanks to the contribution of a basketball loving donor – the Venice Beach basketball courts are getting a total facelift starting Monday June 25th. More than 50 parks in the Los Angeles area are going to benefit from the donation, and we are lucky to be one of them! The basketball courts are one of the most used facilities in the park.
One court will remain open during the entire duration of the revamp which is expected to last about 3 weeks. The ground will be torn up, graded and completely new surfaces will be put in with new poles, posts, backboards etc – and bleachers! It is expected that they will close and fence off the joined courts first, and when they are completed work will move to the single large court by 17th Ave. If you have any questions stop by and chat with the friendly folks at the Park Office!
