Beacon Park

Light. Energy. Motion

Beacon Park opened in July 2017 and spans 1.2 acres in Downtown Detroit. It features stunning light installations, an open lawn space and a contemporary two-story restaurant. The park hosts a program of daily organized activities from musical performances and children’s events, to art installations, local markets and more. Beacon Park serves as a magnet for the community – attracting over 3 million visitors since its opening – spurring new development in surrounding businesses.

Trees do so much for us, like removing pollution from the air and providing us with oxygen. 🌳 At Beacon Park, our 41 trees include four species - Red Maple, Black Gum, White Oak, Bur Oak and Red Oak - each of which helps us capture 1,500 pounds of carbon dioxide every year!

When the air smells like mulch and buds begin to sprout, that's how you know it's officially #gardening season. 🌷🐝 We planted tulips at Beacon Park because their bulbs are bright and colorful, and each one has a way of lifting the overall mood of our visitors.

Creating beautiful, fun and vibrant experiences for our guests at #BeaconParkDetroit is our specialty. 🤗  This #FlashbackFriday we're looking back at Bounce by Hou De Sousa, an art piece that transformed that night sky into a burst of colorful triangles. 🎨
