Detroit West Side

Detroit’s West Side stretches from the western boundaries of the city to Woodward and Highland Park on the east and to the crux of I-96 and I-94 toward Central Detroit. The West Side is known for its historic neighborhoods such as Palmer Woods, University District, Warrendale, and the Grandmont Rosedale neighborhoods. Additionally, the West Side features Palmer Park and Rouge Park, the University of Detroit Mercy and Marygrove College, and the Redford Theatre. While the West Side is predominantly residential, there are a number of strong commercial corridors.
