Safe and accessible parks play an essential role in contributing to the social, economic and physical health of the Detroit community. That is why the Gilbert Family Foundation’s Public Spaces team invests heavily in creating vibrant parks and community spaces throughout all of Detroit’s neighborhoods.

In collaboration with other funders, key neighborhood organizations and the City of Detroit, the Gilbert Family Foundation proudly supports a wide range of park projects. Recent examples of investment include our partnership with NW Goldberg Cares on the development of Curtis Jones Park in the NW Goldberg neighborhood.
