Greenmead365 is a public master planning effort to develop a 20-year plan that will lay out the future of Greenmead Historical Park. This unique and important treasure trove of history needs to be able to better serve the residents of Livonia and Metropolitan Detroit. To do so, we need you to tell us what you’d want at Greenmead. Greenmead365 is a public engagement effort to do just that.

What would you like to see at Greenmead 365 days a year? What would make you and your family want to come to Greenmead Historical Park daily, weekly, monthly, annually? To be able to make Greenmead more interesting and engaging for you, we need to know what you want from it. Visit to get involved and let us know what you'd like Greenmead's future to look like.
