DDP assumed operational responsibility for Campus Martius Park in 2009. Under DDP management, the Park known as “Detroit’s Gathering Place” has continued to deliver its year-round signature attractions including the winter skating rink, Detroit’s official Christmas tree, the spectacular three-season fountain, summer Fourth Fridays concerts, Drop of the D on New Year’s Eve, and a marvelous public space. In 2011, a Christmas Market with more than 50 vendors and a Hof Brau Beer Garden, and a Menorah lighting ceremony were added to the schedule. The Project for Public Spaces ranked Campus Martius Park #4 on a list of the 12 best public spaces in the United States and Canada. Additionally, Metromix named the Park the “Best Outdoor Hangout Place in the D”.
