The Foundation is best known for the landscaping beautification and overall improvement of picturesque Lake Shore Road. In that important effort, the Foundation: planted hundreds of trees; replaced sod in the traffic islands and lake side areas; created landscape gardens, installed a sprinkler system and replaced old street signs with lighted signs.
In addition to the work on Lake Shore Road, the Foundation also helped with improvements and amenities for residents’ and guests’ enjoyment of the beautiful Grosse Pointe Shores Park such as the new playscape and park lighting.
The Foundation’s projects are wide ranging - from the practical to the aesthetic. The funds for these projects come directly from your contributions. Please become a member of GPSIF today and participate in the enhancement of our community.
