Another court, another upgrade and another win for local basketballers looking to shoot some hoops.
Heysen Park basketball court in Abbotsbury is the 15th court in Fairfield to be resurfaced and have the backboard and hoop replaced as part of Fairfield council’s commitment to providing quality active facilities.
As part of the upgrade, council has also built an extra 200-metre long connecting footpath from Martens Place and installed bench seating and planted shade trees.
“The upgrades give residents more variety and opportunities to get out and about, keep active and be healthy. Backyards are getting smaller and council is committed to ensure plenty of outdoor facilities are available for families to use,” Fairfield mayor Frank Carbone said.
“Council has been progressively upgrading our basketball courts across the City. I encourage residents to use the facility, shoot some hoops, play a game and socialise with friends and family.”
The $57,600 upgrade was jointly funded between Fairfield Council and the NSW State Government through a Community Building Partnership Grant.
The new court will be available from the first week of October.
