2018 Portland Basketball Court Revitalization Project
Nike and the Portland Trail Blazers are teaming up to refresh up to 100 basketball courts across 30 Portland Parks & Recreation parks.
Court makeovers include:
new paint and a new design featuring the name of the park on the courts, along with the Trail Blazer pinwheel and Nike swoosh logos
redesigned backboards with the name of the park’s quadrant
surface repairs and backboard and hoop replacements as needed
Nike’s contribution to the 2018 Portland Basketball Courts Revitalization Project is a one-time donation of $750,000 to Portland Parks & Recreation, to be administered by Verde, to be used for the reconditioning of the courts, while the Portland Trail Blazers will donate $100,000 a year for the next three years (2018-2020). Nike and the Trail Blazers have selected Verde to receive and manage the grant funds and Verde Builds will serve as the general contractor for the project.
An anticipated reveal of the renewed court and backboard design is planned for late summer 2018, with individual court completions taking place from fall 2018 through fall 2019. We can’t wait for your first game-winning 3-point shot on the new courts!
The Portland Parks & Recreation parks included in the 2018 Portland Basketball Courts Revitalization Project:
Colonel Summers Park
Ed Benedict Park
Healy Heights Park
Mount Tabor Park
North Park Blocks Park
Portland Heights Park
*Construction has begun at these parks, with schedule completion in Fall 2018.
Nike and the Trail Blazers will also continue to support youth programming on the courts including Summer Free for All, the Portland Parks & Recreation summer program that provides free lunches and summer activities for kids during the day and great family activities in the evening.
