Location: Pingree Park, Detroit, MI
A boost to the health and well-being of the neighborhood, a revitalized Pingree Park will also raise home values and serve as a spark for nearby development.
The Pingree renovation project is a collaborative effort between Mayor Mike Duggan’s office, local businesses, neighborhood residents and Project EverGreen, a national non-profit that brings people together to make a difference in their communities through greener, healthier cooler parks that capture carbon and results in cleaner air in the Pingree Park neighborhood.
The Pingree Park makeover aligns with the mayor’s progressive initiative to renovate 40 smaller parks across the city this year hoping to reduce blight and restore community pride. The second phase of the project will be completed in the spring of 2018.
