Marquette Wins Sprite Spark Parks Grant

Community spirit has paid off for the city of Marquette.

The basketball court at the Shiras Hills Park has been awarded a $20,000 grant.

It’s through the 2011 Sprite Spark Parks Project from Coca-Cola.

It’s a refurbishment grant for new basketball rims, backboards, resurfacing and art installations.

The official check presentation will take place next Monday at 4pm at the Shiras Hills Park.
