Splash Park at Palmer Park
People for Palmer Park applauds the efforts of Lear Corporation and the City of Detroit for donating time, effort and funds to build the Splash Park. Palmer Park was chosen by the City of Detroit Recreation Department as the location for the second splash park in the city to be built by Lear. Construction at the site of the former pool was completed in August 2013. The Palmer Park Splash Park is motion-censored and will be programmed to turn on at 10:00 am, and automatically shut off at 8:00pm, throughout the summer months.
Future plans are to build a new picnic shelter and renovate the former pool house into a community center.
“Through [former Detroit] Mayor Bing’s fundraising efforts to support recreation and parks, LEAR Corporation continues to invest in the community. The partnership between PFPP and the City has proven beneficial as we see wonderful projects such as the new Splash Park and playscape at Palmer Park. These enhancements will provide additional recreational opportunities for all generations,” stated Alicia Minter, Director of the City of Detroit Recreation Department.
10:00am-8:00pm, 7 days a week during summer.
The Splash Park and playground are located on Merrill Plaisance, between McNichols (6 Mile) and 7 Mile Roads.
