GROSSE POINTE PARK — Situated on Detroit’s east side border, the Park is a relatively short commute to a host of colleges in the city, including Wayne State University, the University of Detroit Mercy, the College for Creative Studies and Marygrove College.

Built by the city in 1987, the shady seating area has become a target of vandals, who’ve carved, painted and written graffiti on it on a regular basis, leaving Public Service workers with the task of trying to remove such graffiti on an almost daily basis, said Public Service Director Joe Ahee.
