2019-2021 GYO Basketball Court Project

The GYO Board is pleased to announce our newest capital improvement to GYO Park: a new outdoor basketball court!

This project is a big one, and we are looking for help from our awesome community and local businesses to help make it into a reality.

GYO's 2019 Golf Tournament and Car Show raised nearly $10,000, which is going to give us an awesome start to the site work and construction of the court. The GYO Board also applied for a grant from Greater Lakes Region Children's Auction at the end of 2019, and was awarded $5,000! All of us on the board want to thank the fine folks at the Greater Lakes Region Children's Auction for their hard work and dedication to helping all children of the Lakes Region, and for supporting GYO in its mission!

PHASE I: Site clearing, leveling, compacting, adding aggregate
Starting in early Spring of 2020, we will start clearing the site where the new court will be. It is all wooded - but it is relatively young growth, and we are hoping that with a few volunteers and chainsaws, we'll be able to clear the site in a short period of time. If you would like to help with this part of the project, please contact Jay Reed or Shane Bruneau

After the trees are removed, the site will need to be stumped, and scraped. There is ledge in there, but we have a plan for that. Once the ledge is removed, the site will need to be leveled and we'll also need to install some drainage piping.

PHASE II: Paving, striping, hoops, nets, benches

PHASE III: Fencing, landscaping and hard-scaping, finish work
