Detroit’s Adopt-A-Park Initiative
Jack Doheny Companies (JDC), is a proud participant in Detroit Mayor Mike Duggan’s 2014 Adopt-A-Park initiative. JDC was among over 90 other companies, churches and community groups that participated in the cleaning and renovation of over 200 parks in the city of Detroit. The Military-Regular Park, a 1.66 acre park located in the heart of Detroit, was assigned to JDC and Greater Apostolic Faith Temple.
UPDATE: After many hours of hard work from JDC employees and volunteers the park is now finished with new playground equipment and mulch bedding!
Volunteers cleared away 8 loads of 30 yard dumpsters filled with scrap, vegetation, bricks, rocks and debris. The park was leveled and 190+ wooden bollards were installed to create a safe barrier around the park. The city of Detroit is in the process of installing more than $250K in playground equipment, walking paths, picnic tables, barbecues and lighting.
More Updates to Come!
