During its proposal for improvements to the Children’s Playground, the Citizens for Central Park mentioned that they had also mulled the opportunity of building a basketball court. While the group agreed that a court would be beneficial to the youths of Cape Charles, that idea did not go far.
Foremost, CCP felt the residential area next to this Park corner was not appropriate for such an “active noisy game”. A basketball court would also take up a substantial part of the area which they felt could be leveraged for more types of games.
Steve Bennett and Mayor Dize noted that they think basketball court is a good idea and could be accomplished, however, finding the funding and location are problems that need to be worked out.
