Funding Opportunities

Over $7.5 million of public and private investment has been made in Chandler Park to date and the result is the transformation of the beloved community asset into a source of pride for families and residents of Detroit’s Eastside.

 

Park usage has blossomed since the summer of 2015 with over 6,000 families, children, adults, and seniors participating in some sort of organized activity or simply enjoying the park for walking, bike riding, swimming, relaxing, family reunions and the like.  Detroit PAL provides a robust array of recreation activities including T-ball, tennis, football, and soccer.  Attendance for the park, golf course, and the Wayne County Aquatic Center has increased to more than 75,000 annually.

 

However, there are still plenty of opportunities to join in the restoration and programming efforts of Chandler Park. Below are some of the projects which need support. For any organization, institution, or individual we will provide the appropriate recognition.
