Delta Dental of Michigan is donating $5 million toward construction of a 5-acre playground along Detroit's west riverfront in the Ralph C. Wilson Jr. Centennial Park, where construction is scheduled to begin next year.
The Delta Dental Play Garden "is going to be a game-changer for the families in Detroit and for folks who live in this region," said Mark Wallace, president and CEO of the Detroit Riverfront Conservancy.
"This play garden is going to be designed with the best understanding of childhood development and our best understanding of landscape architecture," Wallace said. "We would expect this play garden is going to be a place where every kid dreams of going to every day and that parents within a one-hour, two-hour radius of Detroit are going to have their kids bugging them every Saturday to come down here and play."
