Warriors Renovate Union City Basketball Court
Major facelift planned for court at Town Estates Park
The NBA playoffs have yet to begin, but the City of Union City is already declaring itself this year's big winner thanks to the Golden State Warriors and KB HOME. The two have teamed up to renovate the basketball court at Town Estates Park in Union City.
"We consider ourselves very fortunate and are grateful that the Warriors and KB HOME selected a facility in our city," says City Manager Larry Cheeves. "Because of our current budget situation, funding a project of this nature would be extremely difficult. But thanks to the generosity of the Warriors and KB HOME, kids in our community will soon be playing on a state-of-the-art outdoor basketball court."
The renovation project will include the resurfacing, coloring and striping of the playing area at Town Estates Park. Brand new poles, backboards and basketball rims will be installed. The total cost of the project is about $30,000.
Union City is the latest community to benefit from the Warriors commitment to the youth of this region. As a part of the "Makin' Hoops" program, the basketball organization and its partners, like KB HOME, have renovated 18 courts in neighborhoods throughout the Bay Area.
