Ralph Brooks Park

Ralph Brooks Park

MTWB’s first project was at RBP. The redevelopment included a new basketball court with bleachers, tot lot, and pedestrian access points. RBP features murals by Stephen “ESPO” Powers through the Mural Arts Program. The project was inspired by the community to promote athletics, safety, health, and the arts. It continues to serve as a catalyst for neighborhood renewal & inter-generational engagement.


The Ralph Brooks Community Basketball League is run by Al Custis & continues to grow. They now field 30 teams starting at middle school and going to over 40!

Community Gardens

MTWB worked with city officials to convert seven lots along the block to community gardens.

Additional vacant lots were brought into the project creating a new community garden, concessions space and seating.
