Community Impact: Project EverGreen returned to Detroit’s Pingree Park for phase II of renovations in the summer of 2018. Phase II of the project continued to clean-up the park and added new features, including a gorgeous brick center-piece and a new walking path.

Project EverGreen and the Detroit community could notice the impact that the phase I makeover had already had on the neighborhood. More people have begun to take advantage of the park now that it is more accessible, including baseball teams, dance clubs and families who need outdoor spaces that allow their children to run free.

Phase II continued the great work that phase I brought to the Detroit neighborhood. As the months go on and the renovations continue, the sense of community pride and the raised home values will be maintained. Those in the Pingree Park neighborhood could not be more pleased with the progress of the project.
