Atatürk Park

Ataturk Park Donation Tree

The donors of TACAM Atatürk park project are being recognized on the leaves of the donation tree at the park entrance. Currently, the tree leaves are almost full with the names of supporters who contributed since the beginning of the project, but the tree can expand! On the donation tree there are three levels of pledges; copper leaves for $100-$499, silver leaves for $500-$999, and gold leaves for $1000, and for the pledges of more than $2000 we have larger plates. This is a continuous project and we greatly appreciate your support.

ATATÜRK Park Project
Location: TACAM 28847 Beck Rd, Wixom, Michigan, 48393.

All over the world, there are several designated areas named after Atatürk. But TACAM’s Atatürk Park is the largest such park in the US and outside the Turkic world.

TACAM currently owns a 6.7 acre property which was purchased back in 1981 with donations from the Turkish Michiganders. The property houses the TACAM building and parking lot. Towards the back side of the property, approximately 3.6 acres (14.5 dönüm) of wooded area had not been utilized since the purchase, and was full of fallen trees, leaves, and untrimmed bushes. In 2018, TACAM board of directors believed that this unutilized part of the lot had a great potential to be a public park with running paths, rest and display areas. By naming the park after Atatürk we aim to create awareness about his principles and contributions to the Turkish history for benefit of the new generations of Turkish descent and the American public in general.

Please check this initial video to see how the project started:

On May 19, 2019, the 100th anniversary of May 19, 1919, we opened Ataturk Park with a ceremony and celebrations. The improvements of the park will continue with your donations.

Siz de bu projenin bir parçası ve gururu olmak istemez misiniz?

Thank you very much for your contributions in advance!
