    Oudolf Garden Detroit ribbon cutting set for Aug. 28 on Belle Isle


    At least four years in the making, Detroit’s highly anticipated new Oudolf Garden Detroit on Belle Isle will officially open to the public with a ribbon cutting ceremony at 10 a.m. Aug. 28.

    The 2.5-acre garden, designed by world-renowned Dutch designer Piet Oudolf, is located in front of the Nancy Brown Peace Carillon. It features 15 25-foot-long garden beds and more than 26,000 plants in 106 varieties.

    Oudolf originally planned to attend the ribbon cutting but can’t because of travel restrictions.

    “Detroit is very special to me. My bags were packed but unfortunately, this trip was not to be. This garden sits on one of the most natural sites for one of my gardens anywhere,” said Oudolf. “It’s a place where people can go and never be bored or disappointed. It is also a place that will teach you about plants because you will see plants you have never seen before or have never seen combined this way.”
