Our Park

Our Park

Campus Martius Park is an extraordinary public garden and civic space where residents, workers and visitors come together to relax and play, and to enjoy and celebrate Detroit.

At just over 2.5 acres in size, it’s an open yet intimate place to enjoy the city, and to refresh, connect, and create.

Campus Martius receives more than 2 million visitors and hosts more than 900 events each year.

 

Our Origin

Point-of-Origin-square

Campus Martius¬† park is the “Point of Origin” of Detroit.

Eight miles north of this point is Eight Mile Road, and so on.

After the fire of 1805, Judge Augustus B. Woodward was appointed to lay out a new plan for the streets, squares and lots of Detroit.

The Point of Origin is marked by a medallion embedded in the stone walkway to the west of the Woodward Fountain.
