Waterside Park Upgrades

Waterside Park will soon be receiving some much needed upgrades.  The first will be restored basketball courts, thanks to a State of Maryland Department of Natural Resources Program Open Space grant of $90,000.  Secondly, a new gazebo, picnic tables, landscaping, mulch, and paint will be donated by Salisbury Lowe’s, at a value of $3,500.  Thank you Mayor & Council for approving the grant and donation.

City Dedicated Janice A. Cook Memorial Tennis Courts

Recently the City dedicated the public tennis courts in the Salisbury City Park in honor of local tennis enthusiast and community stalwart, the late Janice A. Cook.

For over 30 years, Janice Cook was a fixture on the City’s tennis courts. Her passion for the sport kept her playing into her 70’s. Mrs. Cook received her undergraduate degree at Mount Holyoke College in Massachusetts and her graduate degree in in Library Science from Syracuse University in New York. She tenniswas married in 1950 to her husband of 59 years, Col. Robert Winfield Cook, USA (Ret.) Bob Cook is well-known and respected throughout the community as the founder of the Greater Salisbury Committee, a mentor to local youths, and a volunteer member of various boards and committees.

“Mrs. Cook, and the Cook family are part of Salisbury history. The family’s connection to the Camden neighborhood, the Greater Salisbury Committee, and the public tennis courts in the City Park is synonymous. Mrs. Cook was an integral part of all these things, and that is why we honor her today,” said Mayor Ireton.

In May, Salisbury Public Works completed the placement and upgrade of the City Park’s existing tennis court lights with 16 new metal halide units.
