So I decided on one of my 12 month projects for this year. I figured since I am at Belle Isle fairly often as it is, I would use it for my 12 month project this year.
Belle Isle is almost 1000 acres and is the largest city island park in the United States. In 1845, the island was given its current name. The design for the island was created in the 1880's by Frederick Law Olmsted (of Central Park Fame). The buildings started to come a little later. It is a fairly nice park but could probably use some love (like many things in Detroit).
I'm not quite sure how I am going to approach this project in the coming months. I figured I would give a brief overview for this first set and in other months just work around a part of the island. We will see, I guess.
