Capitol Park is the center of downtown's most dense residential neighborhood, surrounded by cafes and unique retail offerings, enhanced with beautiful greenery and comfortable seating.
Responding to the transformation of the neighborhood to residential, Capitol Park will be redeveloped with a planned 2018 reopening. The intimate Capitol Park will become a premiere downtown space in a historically significant and iconic district. Once home to Michigan’s first State Capitol Building, the park carries forward important stories of Detroit’s past.
Surrounding Capitol Park are significant buildings designed by famous architects such as Albert Kahn (the Griswold Building) and John Donaldson (the David Stott Building).
Capitol Park is on the national registry of historic places and connects the city’s past with the future.
