The Roosevelt Park Revival is dedicated to providing a dynamic public space that pays homage to local history, promotes citizen engagement and provides entertainment and education opportunities to the community.
At the foot of a long-standing symbol of controversy and decay, an empty park transforms into an icon of community engagement, activity, and place making. Roosevelt Park is the perfect opportunity for community-initiated development of a public space. The park is a catalyst for future residential and business development and a hub for social action Flanked by a national architectural icon, the Detroit Central Station In 2010. The Roosevelt Park Conservancy was formed to coordinate volunteer and fundraising for the park.
This project is only made possible thanks to the involvement of the community and the support of our partners.
