The Cause
Bradby Park

Bradby Park

A community park and recreation area, Bradby Park is a deeply valued community space in the North End neighborhood on Detroit’s east side. The neighborhood is home to 30,000 residents working to offer a safe space for nearly 8,000 children to play and grow. But the park’s indoor center is closed and in disrepair, its sports fields are overgrown and there is no shaded area for summertime meals and activities.

Bradby Park is the only outdoor space in the North End neighborhood that can offer after-school and summer enrichment for kids. We need your support to reach our ambitious fundraising goal of $30,000, which will enable Bradby Park to reopen their recreation building, renovate their sports fields and create a shaded outdoor area.
