Brightmoor has the feel of a small town where neighbors know each other and lift their community from the ground up. This grassroots, innovative community is a culturally diverse environment with homegrown art, gardening, and entrepreneurial endeavors. As a Skillman Good Neighborhood, Brightmoor was the target of a ten-year effort of child-focused initiatives. Brightmoor’s biggest asset is its resilient residents, who roll up their sleeves to create community gardens, participate in block clubs and other organizations, transform vacant properties, and utilize the rolling hills and parks to gather together. Neighbors connecting with Brilliant Detroit are already eager to create a pocket park next to our corner house, which they have already designed to include a gazebo, perennial gardens, and more.
