Downtown Wayne Michigan DTW Ripple Effect Clean Up Day

Wayne is a traditional walkable community with more than a dozen beautiful pocket parks all surrounding a historic downtown area that is poised for renaissance and served by an excellent school district. Young families may be surprised at the beautiful homes available for less than renting.  Below are several of the local community groups that help make Wayne a “Great Place to Live!”
