Warrendale Cody Rouge

Youth Park Project at Stein Park

Stein Park

As a result of the recently completed framework plan, the General Services Department - Parks and Recreation Division will be working with young people to design and activate a place at Stein Park (commonly known as Cody Park). Activities planned for this summer are postponed until the fall once the school year has started. 


Please stay tuned for updates or feel free to e-mail Maria Galarza at [email protected] with any questions. 

Project Overview

The City of Detroit in conjunction with HECTOR Design Services will develop a comprehensive neighborhood plan for Warrendale & Cody Rouge. 

The Warrendale Cody Rouge Neighborhood Plan will be a child-centric plan of action, co-crafted by residents and the City of Detroit to guide future growth and investment in the neighborhood. The plan focuses on four strategic areas:

  •  Housing
  •  Economic Development
  •  Open Space + Parks + Public Lands
  •  Streetscape + Transportation Mobility

The Neighborhood Framework Plan is supported by DTE Energy, the General Motors Corporate Giving, the Skillman Foundation, and Quicken Loans Community Fund. Huntington Bank announced its partnership with the city’s Strategic Neighborhood Fund, with a $5 million boost to help pay for suggested improvements to housing, parks and commercial corridors in the neighborhood as projects in these areas are identified through the planning process. Residents, community stakeholders, and the City will work together to determine how investments from our partners should be made within the planning area to improve the quality of life for residents, children, and their families.
