Utah Jazz Community Basketball Court Opens at Neptune Park
On Wednesday, April 25, the Utah Jazz held a ribbon-cutting ceremony at Neptune Park (473 West 400 North) in Saratoga Springs, Utah, to celebrate the opening of a new Jazz community basketball court. Jazz player Josh Howard, members of Jazz management, the Jazz Bear and city officials took part in the celebration.
The new court measures 100 feet long and 70 feet wide, and consists of one seamless slab of concrete. Boundary lines are in team colors, and a large Jazz logo is located at center court. Six basketball standards surround the perimeter, allowing numerous groups to play simultaneously.
Funding for the project was provided by Saratoga Springs and by Larry H. Miller Charities, a nonprofit foundation representing the charitable arm of the Larry H. Miller Group of Companies.
Jazz President Randy Rigby said, “The Jazz is thrilled to continue its tradition of collaborating with local cities on the construction of community basketball courts, and the team is grateful for the support of Larry H. Miller Charities and Saratoga Springs. We hope the public will enjoy using this new facility for years to come.”
This is the ninth community basketball court that the Utah Jazz and Larry H. Miller Charities have helped build along the Wasatch Front. Other courts are located at: Sugarhouse Park (Salt Lake City), Smith Fields Park (Draper), Fisher Park (Clearfield), Taylorsville Recreation Center (Salt Lake City), Redwood Recreation Center (Salt Lake City), Veterans Memorial Park (Salt Lake City), Miller Park (American Fork), and Palmer Court, a private facility that provides affordable housing to low-income individuals and families in the Salt Lake City area.
