The historic neighborhood of Campus Martius Park underwent a major redevelopment phase that wrapped up in 2004. Its renovation was key in convincing suburban residents and visitors to return downtown for entertainment. Campus Matrius features an outdoor movie theater, lush flower gardens, and mesmerizing waterfalls flowing from finely sculpted foundations. Groove to the smooth sounds of the Detroit International Jazz Festival and a slew of concerts in the summertime. Put your earmuffs on snug and indulge in the icy, family-oriented fun of Winterfest during winter months.
