Hillside Park Basketball Court Unveiling

Saturday, April 13, 2019

Join us for a celebration at Hillside Park to unveil three newly refurbished basketball courts!

The Durham Parks Foundation, Durham Parks and Recreation and Durham City Council Member Charlie Reece will join Naismith Basketball Hall of Famer Grant Hill and FILA North President Jennifer Estabrook to unveil three newly refurbished basketball courts at Hillside Park. FILA and The Tamia & Grant Hill Foundation, in partnership with the Durham Parks Foundation, have come together to subsidize the project. During a special ceremony at Hillside Park, more than 100 kids from the community will be on-hand to inaugurate the new courts and meet the NBA legend.  

Grant and FILA have helped to transform and revitalize the park with the fusion of sport and art. The updates included court resurfacing, new backboards, and renewed fencing and landscaping. To create a fun and inviting space for the youth of the community, the design highlights the City of Durham flag and its red, white, blue and yellow hues; the Grant Hill Foundation logo appears at center court, with additional Hill and FILA branding featured throughout. Local artist Sarahlaine Calva added her colorful perspective, with vibrant, custom artwork that decorates the middle court.

Attendees will receive t-shirts, mini basketballs, and other giveaways! Refreshments will also be served.
