ATLANTA HAWKS FOUNDATION PARTNERS WITH COUNCILMAN KWANZA HALL'S YEAR OF
BOULEVARD INITIATIVE TO RENOVATE FOUR COURTS IN CENTRAL PARK
The Hawks Foundation Court Renovation program helps build and renovate basketball courts in deserving neighborhoods throughout metro Atlanta, providing youth with a place to play and be active. Based on location needs, the Hawks install new pavement or resurface an existing court as well as put up new backboards, rims and nets. In September
of 2012, the Atlanta Hawks Foundation donated $50,000 to renovate the four courts
in Central Park. This was done in conjunction with Councilman Kwanza Hall's Year of Boulevard, a comprehensive effort aimed at revitalizing Council District 2’s Boulevard corridor.
