The Detroit Mower Gang

We mow the abandoned parks and playgrounds of Detroit.

The problem we aim to solve:

The Detroit Mower Gang gives kids a place to play by mowing the abandoned parks and playgrounds of Detroit.

The solution our project offers:

It provides kids with useable play spaces and play structures.

The impact our project had so far:

We have been able to put over 30 different playgrounds back into service.

Pow! The Detroit Mower Gang kicks grass all over the abandoned parks of Detroit. We put horsepower to the ground and keep old playgrounds mowed so that Detroit’s kids have a place to play. Anyone is welcome.

Who: The Detroit Mower Gang is a bunch of do-gooders that refuses to let parkland go to waste. Anyone is welcome in the gang, most members are people that dislike seeing neighborhoods in decay and feel bad for kids that have no place to play. Members also seem to enjoy gasoline powered equipment, fixing it, running it, and mowing grass. If you own a lawn tractor, a weed whacker, or anything like that, you will definitely enjoy being in the mower gang and we’d enjoy having you as a member.
