We are hoping that this week the postsand baskets will be installed at Rembrandt Park for the main and new half court.
The renovation of the court and the construction of the half court began on June 11 and the final project was expected to be completed in seven weeks (July 26). The asphalt was laid on June 21 and needed to cure for 28 days before painting the surface. We have kept construction fences up to protect the asphalt from any damage caused by children to prevent the epoxy paint from sticking.
The painting of the two courts was done last week and I think we can all agree it looks beautiful. Due to manufacturing delays, we have been on hold for the basketball posts. It has been frustrating but the final product will be worth the wait I hope. Last season the weather allowed basketball to be played right through mid-November.
New lighting will be installed as well.
