DeKalb County’s Gresham Park will soon have an outdoor basketball court, thanks to The Atlanta Hawks Foundation. The foundation donated $48,000 to develop the basketball court, expected to be completed by late Fall.
DeKalb County Department of Recreation, Parks and Cultural Affairs and Foundation representatives held a groundbreaking ceremony on July 14 at the park, located at 3113 Gresham Road, Atlanta. About 100 children participating in the county’s summer parks program joined officials for the ceremony.
The new basketball court, county officials say, will not only provide recreation for residents in the area but enhance the overall health and wellness for the community.
