I hope the city decides to rebuild the basketball courts somewhere in Central Park. My boys played basketball there many nights with no problems. It's sad that the city took something away from the kids and the community so they could have new city offices. What's going to built to the left of the new city offices? Perhaps locate the courts there somehow.

I don't understand where "left" is. When facing the new City Hall, left is the Iron Horse Trail. Use north, south, east and west to be unambiguous.

It wasn't just kids who played at Bollinger. This place had legendary history -- hosting college level competiton was commonplace.

As someone who played basketball there frequently, I can assure you this wasn't a place where "trouble-makers" hung out, as uninformed critics would have you believe. On the contrary - Bollinger was a haven for the after-work crowd, for relatives, for serious ballers to hone their craft against some of the areas best competition. Sportsmanship, friendship, and community were its character traits. You can't see that from a distance or just by driving by. This place had a legacy and some selfish members of the San Ramon gov't chose to 1) ignore that and 2) foolishly had no Plan B. That's just plain irresponsible and I hope they have the sense to rectify it.

Find a place to put the courts and get them built. How about behind the tennis courts?

Behind the tennis courts would be great.
