    Basketball Courts and Public Art: Inspiring Inter-generational Play in Public Parks

    Public park basketball courts are the “heart-beat” of many communities. Leveraging the energy and creativity created by outdoor basketball, Project Backboard will coordinate with local and national partners to renovate 15 basketball courts in LA, commission and install public art, made by community members and working artists, around each court, host free all-ages basketball tournaments, cleaning up graffiti and install outdoor fitness equipment where appropriate.
