Since 2000, the Downtown Detroit Partnership in collaboration with the city of Detroit has been the recognized leader in creating, programming, and managing Downtown Detroit’s historic and transformational public spaces and urban parks.
While each park has its own unique amenities and identity, all provide a beautiful and serene environment for businesses, employees, and residents to enjoy daily. Placemaking initiatives activate these public spaces attracting over 2 million visitors annually, in alignment with Downtown Detroit Partnership’s efforts to enhance Downtown neighborhoods.
