Pioneer Park Basketball Court Under Construction

Pioneer Park Basketball Court

July 29, 2015; La Grande, OR

The City of La Grande Parks & Recreation Department, thanks to the generous support of the Collman family and RD Mac, Challis Concrete finishing, and the Wildhorse Foundation is constructing new basketball courts inside Pioneer Park that replace the old tennis courts. 

“This project is being completed with contributions from grants and donations and will have no impact on the general fund budget,” said Stu Spence, Parks & Recreation Director.  He went on to say, “I’m so thankful for this kind of overwhelming support, especially from the Collman family.  Without them, it wouldn’t have happened.”

There will be two full size varsity courts outlined inside the fenced area with four full size hoops.  Recreation staff also have plans to use portable hoops for youth basketball events in the future.   

The city hopes to have the project completed and playable by the middle of August.  If you have questions, please contact the Parks & Recreation Department at 541-962-1352 or email Stu Spence directly at
