the project

Bailey Park Beautification Day is a community-driven project aimed at revitalizing and enhancing the aesthetic appeal of our beloved neighborhood park. Our vision is to transform Bailey Park into a vibrant and welcoming space fostering pride and unity among residents and visitors alike. By bringing together volunteers, local businesses, and community organizations, we will embark on a collective journey to create a greener, cleaner, and more enjoyable environment for everyone to cherish.

During Bailey Park Beautification Day, we will undertake various activities to breathe new life into our park. Volunteers will plant trees, flowers, and shrubs, adding bursts of color and natural beauty to the landscape. Additionally, we will focus on revitalizing the park's infrastructure, such as installing benches, and improving the play areas to ensure a safe and enjoyable experience for park-goers of all ages.

This project is an opportunity for our community to come together and make a lasting impact on our surroundings. By actively participating in Bailey Park Beautification Day, residents will contribute to our park's physical transformation and cultivate a stronger sense of belonging and connection within our neighborhood. Through collaboration, volunteerism, and a shared commitment to our community's well-being, we can create a revitalized Bailey Park that will serve as a source of pride for future generations. Join us as we embark on this exciting journey to beautify and revitalize our precious green space!

why we're doing it

The Bailey Park Beautification Day project, tackles Detroit's social, economic, environmental, and park equity challenges, aiming to create positive change in these areas. McDougall-Hunt is a neighborhood with limited access to quality neighborhood green space and parks. The project tackles park equity by providing beautiful, well-maintained, inclusive, and accessible areas for recreation, relaxation, and community building that makes a place for all residents to enjoy 

Moreover, the project has economic implications for the neighborhood. Well-maintained parks have enhanced property values and attracted businesses and investments to surrounding areas. By improving the aesthetics and amenities of Bailey Park, the project team aims to contribute to the neighborhood's economic revitalization, creating opportunities for local businesses, generating employment, and fostering a vibrant local economy.

Additionally, the Bailey Park Beautification Day project aligns with environmental goals by promoting sustainable practices and enhancing the ecological value of the park. Planting trees, flowers, and shrubs beautifies the park, improves air quality, provides habitat for wildlife, and mitigates the urban heat island effect. The project team encourages environmental stewardship and awareness by involving the community in these environmental efforts, fostering a sense of responsibility towards the natural environment.
