Point-and-shoot photography is allowed on the grounds. Professional photography, including for special occasions or portraits, requires a permit and is available both weekdays and weekends. To inquire about photography on the grounds, contact Patti Timmins at or 313-668-3200 and refer to our Photography Use Guidelines.

Photography sessions are unavailable between the dates of August 30th and September 5th, 2021. We thank everyone for their patience.
