Campus Martius Park is the only year round programmed outdoor space in downtown Detroit and one of the most desired locations for events and festivals. These activities provide a consistently positive image of the Campus Martius district and downtown city life. With over 250 activity days and several high-profile events, the Park leads downtown pedestrian life.
The constant activity hub in the Park is the Fountain Bistro. Located by design at the very center of the Park and adjacent to the Woodward Fountain, the Bistro is open daily, seven days a week providing casual dining and drinks, and constant flow of activity. The Park is also a great place to just relax, meet a friend, and enjoy the gardens, lawns, the fountains and the surrounding historic downtown skyline. The Park has an ample number of comfortable French bistro tables and chairs for visitors to use and enjoy.
The Conservancy produces its own programming with a culturally diverse music performance focus during the summer months and holiday events, and ice skating during the five fall/winter months.
