Beautiful Day in Detroit's Campus Martius Park: Placemaking in Action June 2015
There are so many great places in Detroit and Hart Plaza and Campus Martius Park definitely ranks among the city’s best areas for gathering, eating, listening to music or just hanging out. Here are some placemaking photos we took recently in this hustle and bustle area of Detroit. Detroit embodies many of the placemaking assets people seek today - an array of businesses, restaurants and shops within easy walking distance from residential neighborhoods, public transit, entrepreneurship, cultural amenities, such as art sculptures, a public gathering spaces, and an overall inviting environment. The League believes that Michigan’s cities are vital to the state’s economic turn-around and that better communities will result in a better Michigan.
