Improvements coming to Rouge Park

According an announcement that was made at the Friends of Rouge Park meeting this past Tuesday evening, some improvements will soon be coming to Rouge Park as a result of the State of Michigan taking over operations of Belle Isle. The change to means that some of the resources previously allocated to Belle Isle will instead be allocated to Rouge Park.

It's not clear, as of this writing, exactly how much of the $4 million that the City of Detroit used to spend on Belle Isle will be coming to Rouge Park nor is it clear exactly what it will be spent on. The details, it would appear, are still being worked on.

Regardless of that uncertainty, I have to say that I'm glad to know that these improvements are coming.
