More than a century ago, Senator Thomas Palmer and his wife Lizzie Merrill Palmer would often invite guests to enjoy their Log Cabin Farm, drink freshly pressed apple cider, and enjoy the harvest. Palmer donated the land in the late 1800s to the city of Detroit to serve as a park "for the good of everyone."
In honor of the harvest and in celebration of the Palmer legacy, the park will be filled with autumn festivities and free family fun.
This will be a fun-filled opportunity for all ages to discover how our food is grown, the lives of farm animals, and nature in the park.
Sponsors:Presented by People for Palmer Park with the support of the City of Detroit. Special thanks to Home Depot for a grant and volunteers that made it possible to build the PFPP Educational Garden.
