Bounded by Pontchartrain Boulevard on the west, McNichols on the south, and Woodward to the east, the neighborhood is named for the beautiful, wooded park that borders its northern edge. The triangular plot of land formed by the intersection of Woodward Avenue and McNichols makes up the Palmer Park Apartment District. In recent years, many of its apartment buildings have been returned to their former glory with updated features and renovations that uphold their historic integrity. Residents enjoy the adjacent park for walking dogs, playing sports, and nature-gazing. The district’s convenient location makes it easy for residents to enjoy nearby amenities in Detroit and neighboring Ferndale, and access major roads and expressways quickly.
