NEW: Photos of Jack Renner's latest Urban Renewal Projects- 2015

For many years, the corner of Cameron and Riverside on the city’s west end suffered from neglect; a five star location with a magnificent view of the Detroit skyline, this section of our community had become rundown and seedy.

While taking photos of the site in the winter of 2002, I become conscious of this location’s unrealized potential. This epiphany soon turned into a passion, and I became committed to work toward cleaning up and turning the site into a community park.

I designed some rough sketches that included a three-year plan to improve the site’s landscaping; clean-up and beautification began in the Spring of 2002, with the final phase completed in late fall of 2004.

I am very excited and proud of the achievements that have been accomplished. This public garden and park has exceeded everyone’s expectations, and will stand the test of time as a legacy of what can be achieved when a group of committed volunteers comes together.

Much thanks and appreciation to those who contributed funds, materials and supplies, or time to building this park, which will serve as a beacon for future.
