A successful tip-off to the 2019 season.

The 2019 Basketball in the Park season opened on Thursday, May 30, with nearly 200 parents, kids, volunteers and newcomers. While the program began with basketball, the evening included a variety of activities from arts and crafts, flag football, jump rope, and general playground shenanigans. It was exciting to see so many children and parents participating in the event.

Basketball in the Park would not be what it is without the support of our volunteers and donors. We’d like to thank the St. Louis Park Police Department, Rancher’s Legacy, Aldersgate United Methodist Church and the teachers and staff of Peter Hobart Elementary School for all the time, energy and resource that you’ve given.

Basketball in the Park tips off again this Thursday, and every Thursday throughout the summer, except July 4 and August 8. We’d love to see the event grow and continue to be a positive force in the community.
