The renovation of Detroit’s Antonio McDuffy Park (formerly Philadelphia Park), located in the city’s New Center Historic District, has reached the halfway point.
Join Project EverGreen’s Cindy Code and Brad Byarski of Premier Group Associates as they share an update on the park’s transformation ahead of the July 21 ribbon cutting.
The park serves as an important community gathering space for residents of the Piety Hill neighborhood. It was re-named for Antonio McDuffy, a beloved neighborhood resident who was a tireless advocate for the community. The project aligns with Mayor Duggan’s comprehensive plan to renovate Detroit’s parks.
The following Detroit-area businesses and community organizations have collaborated to transform the park: Rocket Community Fund, Ralph C. Wilson, Jr. Legacy Funds of the Community Foundation for Southeast Michigan, Magna/Magna Seating, Premier Group Associates, PEA Group, The Davey Tree Expert Co. and Green Acres Tree Farm & Re-Tree, LLC.
Project EverGreen, a national non-profit devoted to creating a greener, healthier, cooler Earth that has renovated nearly 50 community parks and green spaces totaling more than 100 million square feet of living green space since 2008.
