Basketball Court in Phoenix Park

Basketball Court in Phoenix Park

Build a basketball court in Phoenix Park. There's no court for basketball fans in this part of the city and Phoenix Park seems to be a perfect location.

Why is this important?

There're already soccer, GAA and running facilities, cycling lanes and children playgrounds in the park, but nothing for growing amount of people interested in basketball. The OPW says they have no plans to install basketball court there, but we want the park to be enjoyable for everyone.

This is not a huge investment and many will benefit, as well as public health.

Reasons for signing

  • Basketball is awesome and we should encourage all sports!
  • I'm signingvthis because- as the petition states- there's nowhere to play in this part of the city and I am a bit tired to cycle over 6km to play.

Over 800 hundred signs makes this campaign suprisingly succesfull. Obviously there's a huge amount of people interested in basketball in Dublin and a big need to create more sports facilities around the city.

The petition was send to the OPW yesterday. Also, I've contacted several local TDs and I've already received only a positive and enthusiastic response from them! I truly believe they will help and make this idea coming true. Stay tunned for more updates!
