Parks & Recreation

We believe in nonstop fun.


Detroit Parks & Recreation provides recreation and leisure activities for all who live, work and play in Metro Detroit. With 309 parks and 11 recreation centers, DPRD connects communities with parks, programs and facilities to positively impact their health and wellness. Whether it’s a family picnic at one of our newly renovated neighborhood parks, taking one of the many classes offered at our recreation centers, or enjoying an outdoor concert at Hart Plaza or The Aretha Franklin Amphitheatre, we’re making it happen! With programs for youth, adults and seniors, DPRD strives to be the premier recreation service provider in Metro Detroit.

Registration is open for Detroit Parks & Recreation Summer Camp.
