Intersections Park

Heritage Works
Detroit, Michigan

This pocket park at the corner of Martin Luther King and Rosa Parks Boulevards was transformed through the team effort of North Corktown community members and students at Burton International School. All of the pieces in the park were chosen to honor the contribution of King and Parks to the civil rights movement and build the community’s understanding of what their work means to all of our lives today.

Heritage Works is a cultural-arts organization that supports the creative, educational and vocational development of children and families by providing programs in cultural enrichment, performance and visual arts, health and wellness and academic and professional skills. More about this project >
