New Basketball Goals to be Installed at Girard Park

Three goals temporarily removed due to safety concerns

Posted: Apr 9, 2021 2:30 PM

Lafayette, LA – All four basketball goals and posts on the outdoor court at Girard Park will be replaced in the coming weeks. In the meantime, three of the four goal posts, in jeopardy of falling, have been removed due to safety concerns. The remaining goal is safe to use.

The Parks and Recreation Department has ordered materials to build four new frames and will start next week. New backboards and rims will also be installed.

Basketball courts at Girard Park are some of the most heavily used courts in the city, and players can look forward to having a full court again once the project is completed in three to four weeks.
