Lafayette Consolidated Government will install new basketball goals at Girard Park in the coming weeks.

Officials say all four basketball goals and posts on the outdoor court at Girard Park will be replaced. Three of the four goal posts were in jeopardy of falling and were removed for safety reasons.

The remaining goal is safe to use, LCG said.

Materials have been ordered by the Parks and Recreation Department and fabrication is expected to start next week.

New backboards and rims will also be installed.

LCG said that the basketball courts at Girard Park are some of the most heavily used courts in the city.

Players can look forward to having a full court again once the project is completed in three to four weeks, they said.
