Welcome to Palmer Woods, a Detroit neighborhood filled with harmony, diversity and warmth: multicultural residents, architectural treasures, and natural beauty in a wooded, urban setting. Our historic enclave of about 300 homes is nestled west of Woodward Avenue and north of Seven Mile Road in Detroit, Michigan.
On this site, learn about our community: the Palmer Woods Association, our history, services available to our neighborhood, news, events and more.
Visit our quiet, winding streets and tree-lined sidewalks, bordered by magnificent Tudor Revival, Neo-Georgian, Mediterranean, Modern and Craftsman homes designed by architectural legends such as Frank Lloyd Wright, Minoru Yamasaki, Albert Kahn, Maginnis & Walsh, C. Howard Crane, Richard H. Marr and others.
Enjoy our neighborhood gatherings—block club parties, concerts, estate sales, home tours, and planting projects, as well as informal get-togethers for bike rides, walks, gardening, and discussion groups.
Palmer Woods: a garden of creative and vibrant energy and home to doctors, writers, artists, musicians, lawyers, judges, educators, business owners, union members, students, innovators, leaders and professionals from all walks of life. Also home to multitudes of dogs and cats, as well as cardinals, gold finches, blue jays, squirrels, raccoons, and a colorful array of wildlife.
Children's Concerts: Palmer Woods Music in Homes and the Creative Arts Collective present a free concert series for Detroit-area children. Partnering with several Detroit Public Schools, various youth organizations, and other groups of children who may not have opportunities to experience live music, musicians perform a special concert several hours prior to our evening concert.
