Interview with Detroit Public Television

I was interviewed again last week for a special that Detroit Public Television is doing on life in our city and its neighborhoods. Instead of a standard, sit-down interview, this time I got to show their camera crew some of the interesting parts of Warrendale.

One of the places that I showed them was the Lloyd H. Ryan Playground at the southern end of Warrendale. The playground is currently undergoing renovations that will make it a much stronger asset to the neighborhood, in my opinion.

When work is done there will be a brand new playscape for young children as well as two soccer fields at the southern end of it. There will also be a covered picnic area.

Another thing that I showed them was the horse barn that the Buffalo Soldiers Heritage Association maintains inside Rouge Park. This is a great resource to the have in our neighborhood, I believe, and I'm always surprised by how few people know about it.

The team at Detroit Public Television is still working on this special. As a result, they do not have a definite day or time as to when it will air.

However, as soon as that is finalized, I will report it on this blog. I will also schedule a viewing party to watch it somewhere in the neighborhood.

In the meantime, I invite everyone to follow me on Instagram to see more photos like the ones that I have showcased in this blog post.
