Rouge Park is the largest park in Detroit, and we need your help keeping it clean and safe for everyone to enjoy. Come help your Friends pick up litter along Joy Road! Volunteers will meet at the Buffalo Soldiers Horse Barn at Joy Rd & Lahser Rd. Parking and restrooms are available on-site. Dress for the weather with closed-toed shoes.
