Basketball HoopGothic Area Tourism of Eldon recently received a grant from the Wapello County Foundation in the amount of $4500 for the purchase of new basketball hoops at the Eldon Park.  The hoops will be an upgrade to the existing basketball court and will provide a high-quality and safe environment for both casual and competitive play.
