Glassboro will have a ribbon cutting 4 p.m. Tuesday, May 28, for the borough’s newly revamped Owens Field basketball courts at 230 Wilmer St.
Mayor John E. Wallace III and fellow Borough Council members will preside over the ceremony for the completely rebuilt courts, spruced up with a tile surface designed to provide safety and durability, as well as “enhance the performance of athletes.” The modular court surface is custom-colored with GHS Bulldogs colors and has a 15-year warranty, compared to traditional outdoor courts which may need to be resurfaced every few years.
In addition, the parks and recreation department has renovated the bathroom facilities.
Local youth will play the inaugural basketball game followed the ribbon cutting.
“I know firsthand just how important it is for our youth to have a neighborhood basketball park where they can play and socialize,” said Mayor John Wallace. “This complete facility makeover is a great way to give basketball players a chance to be active and work on their skills by providing them with a fresh, safe and fun place to play the game.”
