Atchison – The Atchison City Commission voted on October 2nd to approve construction of an all-new, post-tension concrete basketball court facility to replace the existing asphalt courts at LFM Park. In addition to the concrete slab, the new courts will include new 10 ft. chain-link fencing all-around with gates, 4 new goals, improved sidewalk connections and an acrylic surface coating.
Demolition of the existing courts is expected to begin in early November with construction to immediately follow. The expected duration of the project is 2 to 3 weeks with the possibility for the acrylic coating to be done in spring if temperatures fall too low.
For LFM Park users who enjoy cool weather basketball, please keep in mind that there are courts located at Bromley and Morrow Parks while the LFM Park facility undergoes renovation.
