DETROIT (AP) - A classical pianist is performing as part of an effort to revitalize a park near the long-shuttered Michigan Central train depot that’s one of Detroit’s best-known eyesores.

The Corktown Economic Development Corp. on Saturday hosts “Roosevelt Park Live!” The event includes lawn games and an interactive art station that invites people to share ideas on how Roosevelt Park could be improved.

On Saturday night, pianist Ivan Moshchuk performs. He says in a statement that the performance “shows a different layer of our diverse Detroit community.”

Plans call for revamping the park. Corktown Economic Development Corp. Executive Director Chad Rochkind says the park is underutilized, but he notes “it is truly bursting with potential and we want to give people a chance to have their voices heard and their ideas considered.”
