Pre-makeover, the Gribblehurst Court was grey and drab with cracked asphalt, a dilapidated basketball hoop. Parklife were engaged by Auckland Council for a design and build project to reconfigure the layout, patch up the asphalt, lay down an sports surfacing system, install a new basketball tower and courtside seating.
This approach of refurbishing an existing asset is the most cost effective and environmental way to create great recreation facilities.
Quality courts increase participation opportunities particularly for players that don’t have the means to join a team. Players become connected to their local court and a strong player community develops.
