New Hope’s Little Acre Park Basketball Court Slated for Replacement
The New Hope City Council will vote this week on replacing the Little Acre Park basketball court. The court is cracked and is more than 30 years old. It was last resurfaced in 2014.
Each year, city staff perform annual inspections of all parks and staff say this court has reached the point of needed a replacement. City documents say the soils beneath the court surface have led to repeated cracking, peeling of the court surface as well as the basketball hoop bases. The hoops have continued to shift and lean into the court, so they can only be corrected by removing the footings and replacing the entire hoop.
The amount for the basketball court is estimated to be $80,000, which is part of the amount budgeted for repairs in 2021.
The park is located at 4948 Zealand Avenue North.
