Basketball Backboard/Goals - Over $50,000 was spent to improve the tennis and basketball courts in 2014. Grant money partially funded the improvements. Help complete this project by donating for the purchase of one backboard. Two backboards total are needed.

Project Overview

The Aurora Park Board’s goal is to improve the quality of life in Aurora by updating the parks. Since 2013, we have made more than $500,000 of improvements to White Park. In 2014, more than $50,000 in renovations to the tennis and basketball courts were made possible through a grant from the United States Tennis Association (USTA). We are asking for further financial assistance to complete this project.

You can help us finish the refurbishment of the tennis and basketball courts in White Park! Some of this project was funded with a grant. We are asking for donations to purchase and install two score keepers, two courtside trash bins , two benches, two backboards, and three trees. The total cost to finish this project is $2,000.

A bit about the equipment needed: To help players keep score, we hope to install two score-keeper (a photo above illustrates how these are used). We also want to promote a clean environment by installing two courtside trash cans. Two courtside benches will complete the project at the tennis courts. The adjacent basketball court, which was revised to be regulation size, also needs two backboards to complete the project.

Additionally, we feel this recreational setting will be enhanced by adding trees to beautify the area. Any funds raised above the $2,000 goal will go toward the purchase of hard maples to be planted in White Park.

This is an exciting time for Aurora. We thank you for your consideration of joining us in reaching our goal!
