Quite and peaceful, great way to get a little exercise and a nice view of Canada. Always use the riverfront path to get to a Red Wings game when I'm in town and stay at the Marriott.

This is so peaceful and beautiful. The river is a pretty green and there are benches to sit and relax on.

After dinner at the Rattlesnake we went for a nice stroll along the riverfront. There was live music and a nice view looking South towards Canada. Yes, at this point you really ARE North of Canada!

The Detroit Riverfront is a very nice place to take a walk. I stopped here to see a little of downtown Detroit, in particular the river area, before crossing into Canada.

The Detroit Riverfront offers a nice stroll along a pathway next to the river between Detroit and Windsor, Ontario. Save yourself $ in parking and drive north of the GM building and use street parking for free.

When our tour guide mentioned that Canada was right across the river we all start snapping away taking pictures. The view over to Canada was a Casino though. But overall it was a very nice walk on...

A good attraction in Detroit. The area is very well maintained. Budget friendly as it is free. The walk and path itself was beautiful. You can either be close by the water or stroll around by the plants. You can see right across the way to Canada, which is cool and nifty. Getting there is a little trick as parking... More

Went to see a concert at Cheynne Park (not sure of the spelling) right on the river. Great place to see a concert on a nice summer night with the breeze from the river and the view of Windsor across the way.
