Ralph Brooks Tot Lot Project

Reimagining a Point Breeze basketball court

May 22,2013

THE RALPH BROOKS Tot Lot is supposed to be a safe haven for kids in Point  Breeze who want to get some exercise and stay out of trouble.  But the bare-bones basketball court, at 20th and Tasker streets, feels  anything but safe and welcoming.  If you set foot on the court, your eyes either find empty lots or an imposing  three-story mural nearby that bares the names of dozens of local folks who have  lost their lives to violence.  That gritty vision is set to soon change, thanks to an ambitious plan that’s  been crafted by a local nonprofit, city officials and longtime neighborhood  residents.
