Beacon Park opened in July 2017 and spans 1.2 acres in downtown Detroit. It features stunning light installations, an open lawn space and a contemporary two-story restaurant. The park hosts a program of daily organized activities from musical performances and children’s events, to art installations, local markets and more. Beacon Park serves as a magnet for the community – attracting over 3 million visitors since its opening – spurring new development in surrounding businesses.
