A Slam Dunk At 14th Street


I want to share some great news. We will soon be building a brand new, full size basketball court, with bleachers and new fencing, across from the new Michael K. Green Skatepark.

The new basketball court will add a full city block of park space to the 14th Street greenbelt, between Pine Ave. & Locust. We proposed this new park a few months ago, and are grateful that Los Angeles County Supervisor Don Knabe secured $140,000 to fully fund the project.

One of my priorities has been to re-imagine and enhance the 14th Street greenbelt and neighborhood with new park elements and increased green space. The recently completed Skatepark was the first piece of this project. The next phase includes many improvements, beginning with the new basketball court.

Iím very grateful to Supervisor Knabe and the City of Long Beach Department of Parks & Recreation Department for making this possible.

I canít wait to shoot some hoops with you!

Go Long Beach!
