Check Out the Newly-Renovated Basketball Courts at
Greeley and Gordon Court Parks in Port Monmouth 

Renovation of Greeley and Gordon Court Park Courts
Township officials and representatives from engineering consultant CME Associates stopped by the newly refurbished basketball courts at Greeley and Gordon Court Parks in Port Monmouth on Saturday, November 17th. Pictured from left: Director of Recreation Janet Dellett with her son Ridge, Committeeman Rick Hibell, Deputy Mayor Tony Fiore, Mayor Kevin Settembrino, Committeeman Tony Perry, Assistant Director of Public Works Vic Wymbs, and CME Associates Landscape Architect Dominick Pensabene. 
The Middletown Recreation and Public Works Departments, along with municipal engineering firm CME Associates, recently completed renovating the basketball courts at Greeley Park and Gordon Court Park in Port Monmouth. The courts had been destroyed after Superstorm Sandy when residents needed to move furniture and appliances out of their houses and store them there. The Township was able to use FEMA funds to refurbish the existing courts that suffered from faded striping, cracked asphalt, and outdated nets. Not only do the courts look much better, but they're safer and the backboard has a lot more bounce. At Greeley Park, they added new adjustable nets. Both parking areas were also improved through the addition of handicap accessible parking spaces and walkways.
