District 7 is home to beautiful parks, the foremost of which is the impressive and immense Rouge Park. Active and accomplished community organizations from all corners of the district take part in making District 7 a better place to live. There is a huge variety of architectural styles throughout the district's neighborhoods and has some of the finest examples of unique builder-designed homes in the city. The district is also multicultural, and is now home to a large population of immigrants from the Middle East. Cody High School is the only high school located in the district and comprises three academies, each of which allows students to have a more targeted educational experience. Go Comets!

Fred Durhal III is the newly elected Detroit City Council Member for District 7.  He is the Chair of Budget, Finance, and Audit Standing Committee and Vice-Chair of the Planning and Development Standing Committee.
