Support the Parks

Preserve the Legacy of Detroit's Parks

The constellation of beautiful public spaces and walkable urban parks in the heart of Downtown Detroit is created, managed, programmed, and operated by the Downtown Detroit Partnership (DDP), a 501 (c) 3 nonprofit organization. Parks and public spaces benefit the community and the physical, social, and emotional health and well-being of all park visitors.

If your organization would like to be a part of the creation and preservation of these world-class public spaces, please contact Soula Burns.

It Takes a Community to Keep Public Spaces Vibrant

DDP Parks and public spaces are 100% privately funded, which means we rely solely on donations and support of generous park users, businesses, sponsors, and foundations to preserve these iconic and important green spaces for current users and future generations.

As a nonprofit, the DDP’s mission is to strengthen Downtown through strategic initiatives, signature events and programs. Consider giving a tax-deductible donation to support our work. DDP is steadfast in its vision to make Downtown Detroit a place for everyone to enjoy. Thank you for your support!

Corporate Partnership

DDP signature events and public space programs provide attractive and unparalleled platforms for organizations to reach diverse, dynamic, and large audiences. Our wide variety of programs offer the opportunity to align with DDP’s strong reputation while elevating your brand through networking and marketing opportunities.
