College Park's Ward I Councilman Ambrose Clay offered a look into how the court will be used, adding that a structured approach will best serve the community.

"As promised, access to the court will be controlled.  The court will open soon, once the conditions and procedure for access are finalized.  Please watch for that news on the City website," Clay stated.
