About Garden City
About sixteen miles west of the downtown area, Garden City, Michigan is a suburb in the Detroit Metropolitan region. Originally inhabited by Native American tribes such as the Huron, Ottawa, Sauk and Potawatomi, the area around Detroit came under the control of the newly organized United States in the 1790’s when General Anthony Wayne waged war on these tribes to protect insurgent American settlements. Wayne’s victory at the Battle of Fallen Timbers, near present day Toledo, prompted the way for large scale American occupation of what was then known as the Northwest Territory. Today, the most populous county in Michigan, including the cities of Detroit and Garden City, is named after Wayne. Garden City takes its name from the movement created in England by Sir Ebenenzer Howard in the late 19th century. Inspired by Edward Bellamy’s utopian novel (not to be confused with dystopian), Howard envisioned cities that were self-sufficient with plenty of green space surrounding residential areas, hence the label garden city. Ideally, each home site in a garden city would have ample land for farming to sustain a family with fruits and vegetables. While the idea didn’t become popular in England, it did influence American planners with several garden city examples throughout the United States, including Greenbelt, Maryland, the Lake Vista neighborhood in New Orleans and Baldwin Hills Village in Los Angeles. Garden City became a village in 1927 with a population of about 900. It remains a mostly quiet, residential community not far from the hustle and bustle of Detroit.
It is certain that a Garden City tutor will keep you caught up on your most demanding academic subjects so you can take time away from the books to enjoy the many things to do in the greater Detroit area. Built with the idea of having plenty of green space, Garden City has excellent public parks. City Park features the usual amenities with athletic fields, horseshoe pits and picnic areas. Florence Park has barbecue grills and a playground. Arcola Park, on the northeastern edge of the city, also includes picnic tables and a modern playground for children. Arcola Park is right next door to Warren Valley Golf Club, one of the first courses in Michigan. Designed in 1922 by prominent golf course architect Donald Ross, Warren Valley has 36 holes of spacious, rolling terrain on two separate layouts.
For more recreational opportunities, it’s just a short drive from Garden City to Midway Sports and Entertainment in nearby Taylor. Midway features mini golf, go-karts, batting cages and rock climbing. The park is open for birthday parties and group events. SportWay of Westland also offers 18 holes of miniature golf, go-karts and batting cages with group pricing and birthday celebrations.
