DXF Challenge - Weekly Recap (July 1st - July 8th)

The DXF Challenge is our way to inspire Detroiters to experience the bars, restaurants & cafes on our DXF’s checklists through Instagram! Every time a challenger visits a bar or restaurant, they tag @WeKnowDetroit with a picture of them enjoying something delicious, using the hashtag #DXFChallenge. And you can too!

Here’s our #DXFChallenge weekly recap, featuring some of the latest stops from this week’s top 10 #DXFChallengers!

Park(ing) Day in Detroit

Thanks to everyone who stopped by our mini-park outside of the DXF Welcome Center today! We converted a parking space into a mini public space for Park(ing) Dayan annual worldwide event where artists, designers and citizens transform metered parking spots into temporary public parks. Also, check out the photos from our friends at Wayne State University and Hamilton-Anderson who made park installations today.

A big thank you to Sit on It Detroit for bringing over their reclaimed wood furniture and to Wesley Berry for the flowers!



Experience the Data: Parks Edition Tour Photos

On Saturday, September 12 we joined WDET and Data Driven Detroit on an interactive look at Detroit Parks. This tour showcased several very different Detroit parks, including the city’s largest (Rouge Park) the most controversial (Riverside Park), and one of the most youth-oriented (Clark Park). Find out more about WDET’s Detroit by the Numbers series and the station’s Parks Project

Keep an eye out for our next Parks Tour or attend one of the many events hosted at Rouge Park or Clark Park.
