Newly Renovated Park Reopens in Durham
Elmira Avenue Park, at 540 Elmira Ave. in Durham, reopened March 28 following renovations paid for by a $15,000 grant from the Sprite Spark Park Project. Elmira Avenue Park received the grant by earning the highest number of votes during a spring 2012 contest jointly sponsored by Sprite and the National Recreation and Park Association.
The project's mission was to refresh courts in public parks and recreation centers throughout the country. Constructed during the 1970s, Elmira Avenue Park received a new basketball goal system, surface repairs and court re-stripping.
