It's almost a can't miss sight on the island; the basketball court along the south shore road as you leave Cruz Bay, driving toward the Westin.
No matter the weather – blazing sun, rain, wind, snow :), or time of day – it seems there's always a basketball game going on.
And over the years, understandably, the ground has settled and the court has cracked. It needs repairs.
Now, they're on the way.
Governor John de Jongh signed a bill clearing the way to get the job done, at the expense (loss) of a new recreation center that could have offered additional athletic activities.
He approved "reprogramming" $250,000, previously earmarked for the center, to instead finance repairs to the basketball court at the Pine Peace School.
