Baltimore County To Install 175 New Basketball Hoops
BALTIMORE COUNTY - Baltimore County will be getting 175 new Basketball Hoops, according to the Department of Recreation and Parks.
Under the Basketball System Replacement Project, County officials will replace outdated equipment — some put in place more than 40 years ago — with new poles, backboards, and rims at 168 county-managed basketball courts and 10 Recreation Activity Center (RAC) sites.
“We are fully committed to expanding recreational opportunities across our great county, and that means doing more to modernize our aging equipment,” County Executive Johnny Olszewski said. “By the end of this project, every court the County maintains will provide the modern basketball hoops residents deserve so that every community has a modern, local space to visit, play, and enjoy.”
This project is part of the county’s ongoing efforts to modernize recreation amenities and upgrade aging infrastructure. The Olszewski administration has taken public recreation seriously, investing $45.5 million in parks and recreation this year alone.
“The Department thanks the County Executive for this investment in the improvement of our multi-purpose courts system-wide,” said Acting Director of Baltimore County Department of Recreation and Parks Bob Smith. “These courts are a representation of the County’s continued focus on increasing the recreation opportunities throughout all of our neighborhoods, and we look forward to the implementation of this project.”
Supported by approximately $500,000 in federal ARPA funds, the project is expected to be completed by the fall of 2023.
