The Township of Union is excited to announce the grand reopening of the Sgt. Herbert Davis Park Playground and Basketball Court with a Hoops For Hope event to be held Saturday, October 19 from 1:00 P.M. to 5:00 P.M. in support of Breast Cancer Awareness Month.
The event – hosted by the Union Recreation Department – will begin with a spoken program at 1:00 P.M., followed by a series of fun and entertaining basketball games featuring players from the Union Youth Travel basketball Teams. The afternoon will end with a game between employees from various township departments and schools. Players will be outfitted in pink Hoops for Hope t-shirts.
“Having spent my youth at Davis Park and only living a few blocks away, it’s exciting to see the park revitalized,” stated Mayor Michele Delisfort. “With our upcoming event and park transformation, we are not only promoting a higher quality of life for the people who visit the park now and for generations to come.”
The project began in the summer of 2019 and was recently completed. The transformation of Sgt. Herbert Davis Park was updated with a modern poured in place rubber playground safety surface and a revitalized basketball court.
The event will include live music from a local DJ. Snacks and refreshments will be available for purchase.
