New Basketball Court Planning Meeting - 3/21/18

New Basketball Courts Planning Meeting - 3/21/18

The community spoke. We listened. Now, let’s plan the details together.

New basketball courts at Hyde Park and Gill Creek Park were selected through our Participatory Budgeting (PB360) project, a process that allows citizens to directly propose and vote on how United States Department of Housing and Urban Development funds are spent.

The purpose of the March 21st meeting is to discuss specific court locations, get feedback from local residents and review project timelines.

Per Crime Prevention through Environmental Design (CPTED) principles, our initial plan is to place the Gill Creek court directly off of Royal Avenue side of the park and the Hyde Park Court off of Hyde Park Boulevard, north of the John Duke Center. This decision is not final, but will serve as a starting point for our conversation.
Feel free to send any questions or comments to Seth Piccirillo, Director of Niagara Falls Community Development, at

We look forward to seeing you at the meeting!
