Please note: Due to the temperature of the ground, pavers can only be installed during the warmer months. In addition, we install pavers in batches and the timing of installation is dependent on the complete inscription of the entire 12x48 inch paver. Because of these factors, the wait time may vary.

For more information on our pavers, please contact Shawna Mitchell at 313-331-7760 or


Honor a loved one or mark a special occasion with a tribute gift on Belle Isle. Bench adoption opportunities are available at Sunset Point for $2,500 for a five year commitment (with a chance to renew) and come with the opportunity to inscribe a 2" x 10" bronze plaque.


Send a gift of “symbolic flowers” to a loved one to mark a special occasion! For every dollar donated, one daffodil bulb will be planted on Belle Isle ($50 minimum gift), as part of the Michigan Division of the Woman's National Farm & Garden Association’s initiative to plant 700,000 daffodil bulbs on Belle Isle, representing one bulb for every resident of the City of Detroit. To date, 350,000 daffodil bulbs have been planted on the island. The Belle Isle Conservancy is a partner in catapulting the effort to the end goal.  

We will send your choice of an e-card or flower greeting card to the person you wish to acknowledge. We cannot specify the location of  the tribute bulbs and there will be no on site plaques or markers, but when you see daffodils bloom in the spring, know that you have helped to beautify the park.
