In 1976, the City of Livonia purchased an old farm site now known as Greenmead Historical Park. The farm and its buildings are a reminder of a bygone era of Michigan’s history. It is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Today, the 95-acre compound serves as a multipurpose cultural facility which sees a number of special events every year.
The Friends for the Development of Greenmead was established to raise funds for the development and restoration of Greenmead. Each summer, the organization hosts a garden walk in Livonia. For one Saturday afternoon, five local private homes and the Simmons Hill House on the grounds of Greenmead are open to the public. Proceeds from the event help in the continued improvement of the park.
On June 25th, the gardens will be open for the 32nd Livonia Garden Walk. Tickets can be purchased in advance online or at the Greenmead office and Bennett Civic Center Library. They will also be available the day of the event.
Wright Beamer looks forward to sponsoring this beautiful event for another year and supporting the work of the Friends for the Development of Greenmead!
