The city has completed renovating the basketball courts at Robinson Park and has improved the lighting system as of March, the Department of Public Works reported.  

The upgrades are part of a series of improvements the city has been making at the park.

Public Works Director Ara Maloyan said work on the basketball courts and lighting improvements were the latest batch in a series of ongoing improvements at Robinson Park, located at 1081 N Fair Oaks Ave. 

Work on the courts consisted of demolishing the existing asphalt courts and placing new concrete courts, preparing and applying a Plexicourt sport surfacing system, replacing all four basketball posts with backboards and rims, replacing 24 existing lights with LED fixtures, and painting the existing eight outdoor light poles. 

The city also replaced electrical conduit and wiring, and installed a 24-foot by 84-foot shade structure with a steel frame and outdoor fabric cover.

“These improvements will allow residents and visitors alike to enjoy these amenities for many years to come,” the city said in a statement.

Robinson Park is one of the most heavily used facilities in the city, serving approximately 400 users a day.

According to a city list of park improvement projects throughout Pasadena, the renovation of Robinson Park’s swimming pool and pool building will come next and is estimated to cost around $300,000. Work on this phase, however, may not start before 2023, the list showed.
