 Here’s your chance to give input on future of Northville’s Legacy Park

Hikers prepare to walk along Legacy Park’s many trails.

Northville Township’s 350-acre Legacy Park isn’t quite a blank canvas, but the former property that was the site of a state psychiatric hospital from 1952 to 2003 is a potential masterpiece-in-the-making.

Northville Parks & Recreation is inviting community members to a public input meeting to help shape the future of Legacy Park.

The meeting is set for Tuesday, April 30, from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. at the Northville Community Center, which is located at 303 W. Main Street in Northville.

Share your ideas

Project planners will be on hand to listen to community residents’ hopes for the sprawling property.

If you would like to offer your opinion on the site’s future but can’t attend the meeting, email comments to Northville Parks & Recreation Director Derek O. Smith at dsmith@twp.northville.mi.us. or SDA Lead Landscape Architect Robert Ford at bford@sda-eng.com.

“Since 1952, the property has been a space of healing for many,” states a Northville Township press release that is encouraging residents to offer their visions for the site.

“While the former Northville Psychiatric State Hospital closed in 2003, it’s time to return it to its healing roots. Make your mark on the Legacy Park Master Plan.”
