Waterloo was reclaimed by the community after many years of neglect & deferred maintenance. MTWB & partners worked with City agencies & the local community to re-envision this space for decades of use. Engagement activities have included monthly community meetings, Youth Project Team programming, and technical support for the Waterloo Advisory Council.
Working with Mural Arts artist Carlos Rosa & Project Backboard, Waterloo has Philadelphia’s first basketball court surface mural.
