WAS Design was engaged by The City of Mobile to design a new basketball court at Michael A. Figures Park. The design is based on the famed Rucker Park located in New York City. The basketball court includes perimeter fencing, aluminum bleachers, color acrylic surfacing, entrance sidewalk with seating areas, trash receptacle and drinking fountain. The project was funded in part from a generous contribution from Demarcus Cousins, American NBA all star whose desire was to give back to his neighborhood where he grew up. The basketball court graphic features Demarcus Cousins’ logo and “Loyalty is Love” is written on the center court circle.
