Mayor Kasim Reed will host the unveiling of a renovated Atlanta Hawks-themed basketball court at the Center of Hope at Grant Park on Tuesday, Dec. 15 at 3:30 p.m.
Mayor Reed will be joined by Parks and Recreation Commissioner Amy Phuong, Atlanta Hawks CEO Steve Koonin, Atlanta Hawks Vice President and Hall of Famer Dominique Wilkins, former Hawks star Kevin Willis and current players Mike Muscala, Thabo Sefolosha and Mike Scott to dedicate the final renovation project completed in partnership with the Atlanta Hawks Foundation.
The outdoor basketball court features the team’s new red, black and neon green uniform colors.
In 2015, the Atlanta Hawks partnered with the City of Atlanta to complete a court refresh at the Center of Hope at Bessie Branham and to renovate the teen community center space at the Center of Hope at Pittman Park. The new Grant Park basketball court is the last collaborative remodel project of the year. Additional projects are planned for 2016.
