In this fast-paced world of malls and expressways, are the family business and its personalized service no longer in demand? Do customers no longer value the idyllic small town life of Norman Rockwell paintings?

Downtown Plymouth, Michigan, is the urban commercial district for the City of Plymouth, Plymouth Township, and Canton Township. The positioning of this family oriented downtown gives the commercial district access to a market area of 500,000 people.

Central Square Activities
A charming small town nestled within the larger Detroit metropolitan area, Plymouth’s main feature is our central square, Kellogg Park. The park is the focal point for all the area’s civic, social, and commercial activities that draw more than one million people annually. These activities include:
  • Art in the Park
  • Children's Concerts
  • Downtown Fridays
  • Farmers Market
  • Fall Festival
  • Holiday parades
  • Internationally known Ice Sculpture Spectacular
  • Music-In-The-Air Summer Concerts
  • Music in the Park

The downtown retailers and services clustered around the square, provide a wide variety for customers drawn to these events.

Business Assistance Available
The Plymouth Downtown Development Authority (DDA) has committed itself to making the businesses stronger and more profitable.

Specific business assistance includes:
  • Business assistance seminars
  • Marketing and promotions
  • One-on-one business counseling
  • Public relations

Competitive Future
We have continued to be the center of development for Western Wayne County. During the past 10 years we have upgraded the visual appeal of the downtown by constructing a $2.8 million street scape. This has contributed to the continuing low vacancy rate (1%) and the increase in commercial development. The DDA is also pursuing an aggressive parking plan to maximize the use of existing parking spaces and expand parking inventory. During the next three years, the downtown is expecting over $20 million in new commercial development. These projects will only help to continue to keep downtown Plymouth competitive.

Come by and see our charming downtown. Have lunch at one of our restaurants. Walk our tree-lined streets. Explore how your dreams fit our reality. We think you will fall in love with our small town charm as much as our customers have.

Add to these amenities and the commitment of over 200 business and property owners and community leaders and you can see why Downtown Plymouth "is the place to be."
