O’Connell South Common
The development of this ambitious, covered basketball court at O’Connell South Common became a reality due to a collaboration between the Mayor of Lawrence, Lawrence Community Development and Groundwork Lawrence to increase access to recreation opportunities.
Measuring 76-feet by 100-feet, this huge, steel pavilion is an incredible addition to this recently renovated park in Lawrence. With an eave height of 16.5-feet, it is a perfect covering for a 6-hoop basketball court. Consisting of one full basketball court and two side courts, this pavilion lets the play continue in the heat, rain and snow. In addition to being used for basketball, residents have used the space for walking, volleyball, and as a space to learn how to ride a bike.
