N. Wyandotte Shores Golf Course, 9-holes, municipally owned
Original plans were to make this area a public park, but a 9-hole municipal golf course was built instead.
A dream of 19th century reformers was to make sanitary and healthy cities, out of factory towns full of immigrants, smoke, and disease. Parks were a tool that they used to accomplish this.
While Wyandotte’s industrial heritage continued through the 20th century, in recent decades the city has transformed to a residential community. One feature that has made Wyandotte an attractive place to live is transformation of industrial property into parks.
