My uncle sent me some basic information and a few pictures from this park in Detroit which is named after his father and my grandfather.

There is a four (short) block square complex in Detroit. It is bounded on the North side by Pembroke Avenue; East side by Wyoming Street; South side by St. Martins Avenue; and West side by Pinehurst Avenue.

A Detroit Public School called Bates Academy is located on the eastern half of the complex. It was built in 1981.

The playground was named after the late Mayor Eugene I. Van Antwerp (1889-1962) is located on the western half of the complex. The playground has big grassy lawns, tennis courts, children’s playscape, baseball diamond, and one football goal posts.
