Improvements Coming to Chandler Park - New Indoor Recreation!

The City of Detroit General Services Department is currently in the construction documents stage for a new recreation facility at Chandler Park, the results of many years of community input and planning efforts, as well as recognizing the need to address a "gap" in access to public recreation facilities in this part of the City.  We are gathering input on what types of activities you and your family would like to do in this space, to best design the space to serve the needs of the community. 



We received many suggestions through the engagement process and wanted to give residents the chance to decide what the new facility will be called, please vote here: New Chandler Recreation Facility Name
