June Day is an annual event in North Rosedale Park that signals the beginning of Summer. Continuously for 88 years neighbors and friends have gathered at the Community House for outdoor fun. Think of it as a small town founders day with activities for children and adults. It is a way for everyone to come together and share in what we all love about our little slice of Detroit - Community! There is a parade through the neighborhood down Bretton where children decorate their bikes (prizes awarded!), blocks have floats (decorating a pickup truck with families in the back is a favorite), and our community partners share in the festivities. The afternoon is filled with outdoor fun with free and low cost activities. Challenge your neighbors in the pie eating contest or sack race! In the evening we will have a free family movie night so everyone can wind down and the kids can stretch out in the Community House floor and watch a movie with their friends.

Host Your Next Event


Built in the 30's, the historic North Rosedale Park Community House has been carefully adapted to provide meeting space for a variety of business and social events. The Community House offers Pre-WWII charm and character for meetings, conferences, workshops, private parties and receptions. Daytime weekday rentals offer a great and affordable setting for classes and seminars. The Community House has many modern amenities, including a kitchen, audiovisual equipment, and free Wi-Fi. 




For 75 years, the Community House and Grounds have been the heart of the North Rosedale Park community. And as we look toward the next 75
years, we see a vibrant meeting place filled with friendly faces, lively programming, and educational opportunities.

Realizing this vision for the future requires an inspired effort. So we have launched The Legacy Project, a community-led initiative to reinvigorate our treasured space.

The Legacy Project is a community-led campaign to preserve and enhance the North Rosedale Park Community House and Grounds for the larger Grandmont Rosedale community. Its programs and services are open to everyone.

Over the last several years, more than 370 individuals, companies and organizations have supported The Legacy Project with contributions and in-kind donations totaling more than $800,000. The result is a beautiful 2300-square- foot addition to the Community House with handicap-accessible restrooms. The Community House now has energy-saving lighting, improved electrical system, acoustical panels to enhance the sound quality for performances and TDD-capability for the hearing impaired. That was phase one, now we're moving to phase two.
