Improvements Coming to Chandler Park - New Indoor Recreation!

The City of Detroit General Services Department is currently in the planning stage for several improvements in Chandler Park, including a new indoor recreation facility and new playground equipment. The recreation facility is the result 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.

The type of building—and how it is constructed—will be determined by an architecture and engineering study once a firm is hired.  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. To make your voice heard, attend an upcoming community meeting!
