Takoma Park native and former NBA All-Star Steve Francis opened the newly renovated Takoma-Piney Branch Park Sunday.
Francis donated $70,000 for improvements to the park including:
- A refurbished basketball court featuring a color-coated surface and six new basketball goals, enabling half-court play;
- Two new playgrounds;
- A new skateboard park,
- A new picnic pavilion; and
- “Takoma Trees,”—sculptures at both entrances to the park, created by local artist Judy Sutton Moore, with support from the Montgomery County Arts and Humanities Council
