Park planned for former state hospital property adjacent to new U-M facility
The master plan for a park planned on land adjacent to property the University of Michigan plans to develop into a hospital facility will be unveiled Thursday, the Detroit Free Press reports.
The site is the former Northville Regional Psychiatric Hospital. U-M announced last week that it would open a new health center at the site in 2014. The new facility will be about a half mile from the Livonia Center for Specialty Care, an existing U-M facility located on Haggerty Road.
The planned park will cover 414 acres adjacent to the new hospital facility and a major retail center.
