The basketball courts at Walker Park are a lot brighter thanks to a new mural painted by local artist Jeremy Navarrette.

The project was sponsored by Walmart and the AND1 street basketball brand, a footwear and apparel company that has recently been refurbishing public courts across the country as part of its “Paint the Park” initiative.

A brief ribbon-cutting was held Friday (Aug. 4) where AND1 representatives and Fayetteville Mayor Lioneld Jordan helped put the finishing touches on a few spots left unpainted on the mural.

Jordan also took a few minutes before the event to shoot some hoops on the north end of the courts.
