Blacktop Court Fails Inspection

Rec & Park inspectors recently gave our outdoor basketball court a failing grade. The blacktop surface serves many purposes, including our skateboarding program. It is so cracked that these activities have become hazardous. It has been in such bad shape that Rec & Park will not even paint new lines for basketball even though the paint has faded completely.

Our understanding was that a failing grade would rapidly lead to maintenance but apparently money will not necessarily come from Rec & Park anytime soon. Parents and neighbors need to speak up and demand that Rec & Park remedy the situation so that we can have a safe and functional outdoor play space. Please call 311 or go online to SF311.org and report your concerns. That is the best way to get your message through to the City.
