NIAGARA FALLS - Two new beach volleyball courts have been added to Gill Creek Park as part of ongoing improvements sponsored by National Grid.

For the fourth time in five years, employees from the utility company on Wednesday helped as volunteers to beautify the park at Niagara Street and Hyde Park Boulevard. Activities included an outdoor environmental presentation to a group of Niagara Street Elementary School students, trash pickup and flower planting.

The Niagara Street Business & Professional Association will organize leagues for the volleyball courts and coordinate free use for area residents.
