Beacon Park – Energized July 20th 2017

DTE Energy is developing Detroit’s newest public park scheduled to open July 20th.  The park infuses light, energy and motion to create a distinctive gathering place and unforgettable experience for visitors of all ages. The circular, open lawn is the largest of any downtown Detroit park and gives visitors room to run, play, relax and recharge. With year-round programming, interactive light installations and a contemporary restaurant with a rooftop garden and dining space for panoramic views of the park and city skyline – this park is beaming with eye-catching, Instagram-worthy moments to share with friends and family.

Beacon Park will be Detroit’s most contemporary park on the western edge of downtown. The beautiful and contemporary park will activate 1.2 acres, improve walkability, and create a catalyst for cultural vibrancy and economic development.  

The new park will be home to a full-service restaurant and bar featuring a rooftop patio as well as quick bites from mobile carts and Food Trucks.
