Washington Park

 

An Alameda resident suffered serious injuries Friday, March 23, after a tree fell on him in Washington Park. 

The man was watching his daughter play in a varsity softball game for Encinal High School’s Jets at Lower Washington Park when a large pine tree fell on him, according to a city press release. First responders were on the scene to transport the unidentified victim. The parent was taken to a local hospital where he is in serious, but stable condition. He remained hospitalized as of Monday, March 26.

 

The Golden State Warriors Community Foundation unveiled two newly refurbished basketball courts at Alameda’s Upper Washington Park at a ceremony Friday, Sept. 29. Hundreds of Alamedans were in attendance. 

The Warriors worked in partnership with the Good Tidings Foundation, Aquafina and the Alameda Theatre & Cineplex to bring the new courts to Alameda. The courts are painted in Warrior blue. The Warriors’ logo now appears at the half-court line and the Alameda Recreation and Parks logo along the sidelines.
