Creekside builds a playground this summer

Creekside is working in partnership with KaBOOM! and The Home Depot to build a new playground in our community! The location is Hansen Playfield on the corner of Drexel and Averhill in the Jefferson Chalmers neighborhood. View our playground’s own KaBOOM! web page here.

This project will require the enthusiastic involvement of our community. A special thanks to the community residents who joined us last evening for Design Day. Over 25 children and adults gathered at Creekside’s office to design a dream playground that will become a reality this August!

Interested in becoming involved? Join the Planning Committee and take a leadership role in bringing a beautiful new playground to our neighborhood. Or volunteer for Build Day on Thursday, August 6.

To volunteer for one or more of these opportunities, or for any questions, please contact Caitlyn Pisarski at (313) 822-0062 or

Creekside and Greening plant 45 trees on Philip

Last weekend Creekside, the Greening of Detroit, and over 60 volunteers successfully planted 45 trees along the south end of Philip Street. The group planted several different species, which replaced trees affected by the emerald ash borer recently removed by the City.
