Oudolf Garden Comming to Detroit

Piet Oudolf is coming to Detroit.   Belle Isle is the perfect point of connection for residents and visitors—to the park’s amenities, the city, water and the region’s greenways. This is why Piet Oudolf has selected the land surrounding the Nancy Brown Peace Carillon for his newest public garden—in the cultural heart of Belle Isle, adjacent to the historic Conservatory, Aquarium and Remick Band Shell. The Garden Club of Michigan, an affialiate of Michigan Garden Clubs of Michigan and National Garden Club, spearheaded the effort to encourage Piet Oudolf to create his next garden in Detroit.  In his own words, he announced, “I am coming to Detroit to make a garden… This is the most natural location for one of my public gardens.”
