An outdoor educational experience in the middle of our community.

 
 

green infrastructure meets Green education

As we continue to drive green growth on Detroit's east side, we are committed to making community education a centerpiece of our activities. Located across from Hamilton Academy in the Chandler Park neighborhood - the Hamilton Outdoor Learning Lab will contain rain gardens, flower beds, and an outdoor classroom.

Our goal is for the space to educate students and the community about green infrastructure, offer a natural place for community members to visit, and absorb stormwater from the surrounding streets and surfaces.

This project was made possible through a Kresge Foundation grant. The site plan was developed by InSite Design.
