It took them all of two weeks to accomplish that crap. If there is an actual park, and not a "park", I will be more surprised than after a shart.

The land, pre-nuclear, was suitable for a disc golf course. Not a whole lot of elevation, but could have been home to a course that was a cross between red hawk and the monster.

Their might be enough room left in the space for a dog park when they are done destroying the natural landscape. The proposal from schostak construction shows all the land cleared from haggerty til just up to the old psycho ward. Their is room in the rear of the property, near the subdivison, but I doubt it will be used for disc. The master plan calls more for walking paths and bike paths that lead to the shopping center.
This is especially funny when you think about the vast swaths of vacant land within the city of Detroit. I know that it's not currently suitable for development, but it'd be nice to think that someday that land will be re-purposed and used instead of clear-cutting the dwindling wooded areas.
