“The kids were excited to not only play on the new court but to get the visit from the mayor,” said Saturdays at the Park director Mike Kilsdonk. “The new court has sport court material so easy to replace a section. St. Paul Park is doing a lot of things to make their city a great place to live. We look forward to more kids coming out and playing basketball. St. Paul Park did a great job on this.”

Normally held at Highlands Park in Cottage Grove nearly every Saturday over the summer months, Saturdays at the Park provide an opportunity for kids to work on basketball skills and play pick-up basketball games. Volunteer coaches from the community and special guest coaches (including prominent college coaches and players) help out every Saturday. The cost to play is free, but a non-perishable, non-expired food item for the food shelf is required.
