Basketball Hoops Going Back Up in MoCo Parks

Basketball Hoops Going Back Up in MoCo Parks

About a year ago, on March 24th, 2020, Montgomery Parks made the decision to remove basketball hoops from local parks due to many people ignoring instructions not to gather.

Today, almost exactly a year later, Planning Board Chair Casey Anderson helped with the reinstallation of the first hoop at Woodside Urban Park in Silver Spring.

“With recent changes in Montgomery County
covid guidelines, basketball is no longer a high-risk sport. So, basketball hoops are going back up in the parks.”

It may take up to three weeks to reinstall all of the hoops across county parks.
