Elton Park is an eclectic mix of residences, retail and inviting public spaces in the heart of Detroit’s most historic neighborhood.

Neighborhood

Elton Park isn’t a neighborhood you just pass through. You linger to take it all in, connect with your surroundings and immerse yourself in the abundance of rich experiences. It evokes the unique character of the original neighborhood, inspired by extensive research into the community’s buildings, businesses and inhabitants.

History

Named after the 19th century park that was located at Elizabeth and 5th Street (lost in the construction of the Lodge Freeway), Elton Park is located in Corktown, the oldest surviving neighborhood in Detroit—which is now listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
