It was a beautiful evening the night of our visit and it was pleasant to stroll along the waterfront. It's not super clean and it would be nice to have some eating options closer.

The wonderful view and a great job with river walkway. I had great time I had not been down to riverfront in years. The sight and attraction were beautiful well done. My granddaughters enjoy playing in water fountain up and down. Festival and live music with different activity. I Will go back next year.

Our condo has access to the Riverwalk and we love to walk or bike the length of it. It has gives you access to the Dequindre Cut for biking as well. We like to walk to Chene Park or Rattlesnake Club and never have to move the car. Great views and always a breeze.

I often visit the RiverFront. The water is so peaceful, I've rented bikes from "Wheelhouse", right on the walk. It's been extended to the Westside of Jefferson, where more people seem to go for fishing, since it's not as busy as the main section. No matter the season you go, you'll always find someone exercising....running,biking walking and there is a... More

Detroit has done a SUPER job in restoring their waterfront. I'm a native Detroiter that now lives in Chicago. I recently returned for a reunion with my cousins and we enjoyed a stroll along the waterfront. I have never seen the waterfront look as it good as it does now. We enjoyed hot dogs for lunch at a stand that... More

We arrived by train in the afternoon and took a walk around the downtown. We loved the park and its Labor Monuments that are on the riverfront as well as the fresh air and lovely walkway. It was very active and people were running and walking all around. There is a beautiful view of the bridge to Canada.

I visited Detroit this April and found to be a very lovely place. A walk alongwith the riverfront gives a sense of peace. During night it's a superb place and you can see Canada side from Detroit and vice versa. During night Detroit is amazing. Once can spend a quality time either by sitting at riverfront or taking a stroll.

On a gorgeous day, it is one of the best places to be. Tons of wonderful people running, walking, skating, or just enjoying the time along the river. The markers and art along the paths are well worth a look. Enjoy
