SPRITELY COURT: Park Receives Grant | Events
Evelyn K. Davis Park recently received a $15,000 grant based on votes it earned through the national Sprite Spark Parks Project initiative, which refreshes courts in public parks and recreation centers throughout the country.
Thanks to the 38,419 votes from the community and from around the country the Park will use the grant to make the park safer by filling cracks, resurfacing, and repainting the playing surface and add benches.
It should be completed in time for some spring slam-dunks.
The public is welcome to join representatives from Sprite and the Des Moines Park and Recreation team for a special presentation Monday, December 10th at this month’s Park and Recreation board meeting. The meeting starts at 5pm and will be held in the City Council chambers at City Hall.
