We are putting together a non-profit to raise funds to put a park in where General Motors has closed one of their factories. We need the money for the 501(C)3 application to begin the process of changing a brownfield into a place for families.

Five years ago when we noticed that college grads were leaving the state, I thought what can I do to help?  I wondered if they knew about what Michigan was like before auto manufacturing.  If they could love this place half as much as I do, then they might stay and continue the legacy of greatness here.   

As private citizens, we don't have the dollars to compete with the presentations of big developers for this tract of land.  We are hoping that many small contributions of parents and concerned citizens like us will fill in the gap.

Heritage Park is the concept of a place for families to share in the experience of learning the heritage and history of Michigan.  We want  to share our story with residents and visitors from around the nation and the world in a fun and inviting environment.
