TIP OFF! West Thames Basketball Courts Open for Play

UPDATE: Final surface painting is now complete, and the West Thames Basketball Courts re-opened to the community on May 20.

Play ball! As part of the deconstruction of the old Rector Street Bridge and its attendant west side stairs and ramp, public space for the Battery Park City community has been increased via expansion of the Liberty Community Gardens and adjacent basketball courts.

The final portion of this project is the painting and striping of the court surface, currently scheduled to begin the end of this week. This work will necessitate closing of the courts and take (weather permitting) roughly two weeks to complete.

In the interim, as of Friday, May 7 the nets have been installed and the courts are available for play. Get out there and enjoy!
