Walk two blocks south down Lumpkin Street off Caniff and you'll find this hidden slice of green.

The intrigue: The mini-park opened in 2021 thanks to an anonymous donor and the Michigan Economic Development Corp. matching more than $25,000 in crowdfunding, according to the Wayne Metro Community Action Agency.

  • Students from Wayne State's Urban Studies and Planning program helped design the playscapes, bike racks and benches.

If you go: Salam Peace Park, 2134 Trowbridge St., Hamtramck.
