Project EverGreen is working with the city of Detroit’s Parks Department and local landscaping and community organizations to renovate Pingree Park, an 18-acre park on Detroit’s east side, by June 9, 2018. Pingree Park is centrally located in a stressed residential area and is a valuable gathering hub for this struggling yet stable community. The park is currently in disrepair, appears unsafe and unwelcoming, and is not properly serving the community.
Phase I of the renovation kicked off in early November, 2017, and Phase II will take place June 8-9, 2018.
Our key objective is to improve the design and quality of Pingree Park so that it provides a healthy green space to the surrounding neighborhood with functioning sports fields and inviting gathering spaces. The project will be implemented by a team of local volunteers, landscaping professionals, and the City of Detroit Parks Department – and YOU – under the leadership of Project EverGreen.

We need you to help us complete the restoration of this glorious park in a quiet Detroit neighborhood. With your support, volunteers and neighbors will work with the Detroit Parks Department and local professional landscapers on June 8 and 9 to:
- Install new paved, curved walking paths throughout the park;
- Construct a new natural gathering area with raised landscaping;
- Improve the surface of the playground;
- Enhance picnic areas around the playground and sports fields;
- Complete construction of new soccer/football field;
- Ribbon cutting celebration on June 9th at completion of the work.
