CAMPUS MARTIUS PARK

The first-ever winner of the prestigious, international Urban Land Institute Urban Open Space Award, Campus Martius Park delivers on its promise to be Detroit’s Gathering Place in the immediate downtown community and for the entire city and region. Detroit's signature public space presents spectacular skyline views in an extraordinary setting.

Campus Martius Park offers a wide range of opportunities to connect with friends, old and new, or simply to enjoy a bit of serenity. Rest and relax on any of our comfortable seating options near the everflowing Woodward Fountain or enjoy the beautiful landscaping and flourishing gardens while exploring some of the park’s historical amenities, such as The Michigan Soldiers and Sailors Monument or Detroit's Point of Origin, the 1806 historic monument within the park where the city’s mile roads begin and draw to the suburbs.

If you’re looking for something outside of the day-to-day park activities, the park presents and produces a wide variety of free events, programs, classes, and amenities for you to take advantage of every day, including the region's most popular ice skating rink and several dining and beverage options.
