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!
MTWB worked with city officials to convert seven lots along the block to community gardens.
A safe space for additional recreation activities including a play cabinet by TinyWPA.
