Holly Square Shopping Center: From arson to basketball courts, playgrounds

In May 2008, Crips gang members burned down the Holly Square Shopping Center in northeast Park Hill. More than four years later, the scorched earth is experiencing a rebirth. On Saturday, The Prodigal Son Initiative, a youth organization headquartered across the street, is leading a clean-up effort to make way for two basketball courts, a soccer field, two gazebos and two playground sets made possible by a donation from the Piton Foundation.
