Two Richmond parks are set to receive new basketball courts: John F. Kennedy Park and Unity Park.

On Tuesday, Richmond City Council is scheduled to vote on whether to approve contracts totaling about $400,000 for the basketball courts

City staff is recommending that council award a contract to Silicon Valley Paving, Inc. to construct a new basketball court at Unity Park at 16th Street on the Richmond Greenway.

Staff is also recommending that council award a separate contract to Saviano Co. Inc. to construct a new basketball court at JFK Park near Cutting Boulevard and S. 41st Street.

In June 2017, we reported about the city receiving two state grants from the California Department of Parks and Recreation for outdoor basketball courts at both parks. At the time, the city was awaiting the release of the grant monies.

Unity Park, a community-led project along the Richmond Greenway, celebrated its ribbon cutting early last year.

In 2016, JFK Park received a major facelift with help from a single-day community effort.
