Projects

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.  

Currently CPC is focused on three projects that could use your support, 

Environmental Education Plaza

Skatepark,

Community Garden,

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 each year. 

Environmental Education Plaza 

The Environmental Education Plaza which will be located adjacent
to the newly constructed marshland in Chandler Park will provide an area for school-aged children, community
members, and Detroit residents at-large to learn about green stormwater management, wildlife habitat and
potentially alternative energy sources. CPC is seeking partners to support this project in the amount of $550,000
